Roma need the three points from this fixture to win the group in the case of a bad result for Bodo/Glimt. The team destroyed CSKA last time and the hosts, which have nothing to play for at this point, should not be a challenge for Mourinho's side.
CSKA Sofia vs Roma: Top Free Betting Tips
CSKA Sofia came into this tournament with high expectations – the team generally is stronger than Zorya Luhansk and Bodo/Glimt and yet, they have not won a single match since the start. This is their final chance but is it possible against Roma who desperately need the three points?
Total Goals – Over 2.5
Roma and CSKA played three games over the past 12 months – the teams were together in a group in the Europa League last season as well. The previous match in Bulgaria ended with 3:1 for CSKA but that was at a time when Roma had already qualified and traveled with their third squad. This result will not happen again but we still expect to see more than 3 goals in this fixture.
The first game ended in 5:1 for Roma and this time, the visitors will be even more motivated for a good result. CSKA are a strong home team, at least in their domestic league, and although the team will not gain anything but respect if they get something from this game, we know that they will go all in in an attempt to steal the points. So, we expect goals from both sides here.
Match Result / Both Teams To Score – Roma Win and Both To Score
As stated in the previous bet, CSKA are not a team that will play their youth players in a UEFA match even when they have nothing to gain. We will most likely see their strongest squad and they will try to take on Roma and score goals. So, we expect them to manage with at least one before losing the match to Roma's extremely talented attacking players.
In each case, Roma should be able to win this match without too much trouble, so if you prefer safer odds, go for the win + over 2.5 instead of the both teams to score option presented here. But if you like high odds, this here is an incredible opportunity.
2nd Half Goals – 2+ Goals
Most of the action in Roma's games happens in the second halves, which is actually common for most teams anywhere. This is when the managers have already deciphered the opponent's strategies and players have been instructed into how they should play and thus, we see more goals in second halves.
We expect to see at least two here as Roma will be motivated until the final whistle. They need this win at all costs as it is much better to qualify directly to the 1/8 finals than to play an additional round.
