Match: Roma vs. Porto Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Tuesday, 23 August, 2016
Start time: 19:45 UK
In this return game by UEFA Champions League Play-offs, we will see Roma against Porto.
Roma was really pleased with this result from the first game, because of the away goal. They scored at 21st minute after Monteiro put the ball in his own net after Florenzi’s cross. 20 minutes later Roma received a big hit after Thomas Vermaelen was sent off, receiving his second yellow card. His team stayed in the game 10 against 11 for about 50 minutes and it’s explainable that after this moment Porto took the control over the game.
“The Dragons” were really active through the second half and it was a big surprise that they didn’t take the win. In 61st minute Silva scored penalty for 1:1 and there were a lot of moments after that when Porto was so close to the win. They made more than 30 chances for scoring, which was impressive, but they missed all of them. The return game will be much different. Here Roma will show who’s in control and maybe they will search the win, besides of that that 0:0 will qualify them for the Group stage. The home team has got a little problems, linked with the injuries of Nura, Rudiger, and Rui.
They all have got knee problems, but besides of that Roma has still got enough class to destroy the opponent. Through the weekend Roma take the flying start in Seria A after scoring 4 times against Udinese. Home team is on fire and this progress will lead them to the UEFA Champions League Group stage.
