Man United are back to winning ways in the recent seasons after the unusually long transition phase after the Sir Alex Ferguson era while Roma is still a force to reckon with.

Roma Form & Team News

Roma was the number one team after the group stage in this year’s Champions League. They qualified with 13 points from six games with five wins to their name. In the pre-quarters, Roma beat Shakhtar Donetsk by an aggregate score of five goals to one. And in the Quarterfinals, they faced Ajax and went to win the first legs by the margin of 2-1 and drew the second leg to qualify for the Semi-finals. They are facing English Man United in the semifinals to challenge for the title this season. They lost the first leg by a big margin of 2-6 which in hindsight is a pretty long horizon to come back from. 

Roger Ibanez will most likely miss the next game due to his red card. Ricardo Calafiori, Pedro Rodriguez and Nicolo Zaniolo are the other players who might out on the next game owing to injuries. Borja Mayoral has netted seven goals this season in Europa League making him the top goal scorer for Roma. Dzeko and Ibanez have also managed to score while the likes of Spinazzola, Veretout and Mayoral have also provided a good no of assists. Smalling, Kumbulla and co. have been brilliant at the back with Paulo Lopez at the goal. 

Manchester United Form & Team News

Manchester United were knocked out from the Champions League this season after finishing third in Group H and consequently drafted into the Europa League. They beat Zlatan’s AC Milan in the pre-quarters with an aggregate score of 2-1, even though the first leg ended in a draw, the second leg belonged to Man United. They beat Spanish Granada in the quarterfinal and won both legs with an aggregate score of 4-0. They now face Roma in the semifinal hoping to win the Europa League which will be more like a great result after their Champions League showing. They have a big advantage of four goals going into the second leg clash and only a major slip up from here would trigger a dramatic turn around which is most probably not happening.

Antony Martial and Phil Jones are the injured players in the Manchester United squad. Ole has finally managed to look in control in terms of team selection and strategy making which is starting to yield results. Bruno Fernandes has single-handedly carried the team on several occasions this season and easily looked the most complete player in the Man United set up this season. Rashford, Greenwood, and Cavani have all managed to play a good brand of football which ultimately culminates in the team winning on most occasions.

Our Tipster’s Angle

 Man United have been splendid in the recent weeks and might as well continue this winning run after the Roma game. Roma might still have a sniff if Man United turns up as they have done in the recent knockout games where they have choked into the opponent’s hands. Roma has been involved in some high-scoring game recently and this might be nothing less than that. 

Tip 1: Manchester United to win

Manchester United have shown a great degree of resolve to win games nowadays. With Ole at the helm, the likes of Bruno, Rashford and co are playing their best football. They are presently on a seven-match unbeaten streak across competitions. This streak also included a five-match winning streak until it was broken by a draw at the hands of Leeds United. But they are back to winning ways with the win over Roma last week. Their last away match in the Europa League also had the side from Manchester winning pretty comprehensively. The head to head record also favors the Red Devils’ with a 6-1 win-loss against Roma, with Roma winning their only game against Man United way back in 2007, after which Machester United have not lost a single game against the Italian side. Roma are also in the worst possible scenario going into this game losing all their last three games and an aggregate score of 2-6 in the first leg to make matters worse. So it’s most likely Man United to win. The odds for Manchester United to win according to the Casumo Sportsbook is 1.92. 

Tip 2: Total Goals under 3.5

Four of the last seven matches that Manchester United have played across competitions have had the total goals to be under 3.5. While playing away, Manchester United have had three of the last five matches where the total goals have been under 3.5. In the case of Roma, four of the last seven matches played across competitions, have had the total goals to be under 3.5. Playing at home, all of their last five games have also had the total goals to be under 3.5. In their last five matches in the Europa League, they have four games which had the total goals to be under 3.5. Their last six head to head matches had four games to have under 3.5 goals in it. So it’s quite likely the match will have under 3.5 goals. According to the Casumo Sportsbook, the odds for the total goals to be under 3.5 is 1.67.


Ancestral Rivalry takes center-stage after a gap of nearly seven years bringing with it a fresh challenge for both teams. Manchester United look favorites to not just win here but also win the title. They have an advantage of four goals from the home leg. Summarising on a couple of bets from above:

  1. Manchester United to win @1.92
