Roma vs Qarabag – UEFA Champions League: In one of the encounters of the 6th round of the Champions’ League group stage…
The local side AS Roma, managed by Eusébio Di Francesco, and Qarabag, managed by Gurban Gurbanov, will face off in Rome, at the Stadio Olimpico,
with the hosts having 8 points and sitting in 2nd place of the group, while the visitors only have 2 points and are in last place of this group C.
On the previous match, the Italian side travelled to Azerbaijan to beat them 1-2.
The Italian side of Roma comes into this match very close to ensuring their presence in the next stage of the Champions League, “only” needing to win this match in order to achieve it, that is,
if they don’t want to depend on other results to reach that objective (since the Romans will only need a result better or equal to Atlético de Madrid’s one in order to advance in the competition)
being therefore rather forced to beat the Uzbek champions in this match, much like it happened on the 2nd round of the group stage.
The team is coming off a less extravagant streak of results when compared to some weeks ago, getting 1 win, 1 draw and a loss on their last 3 matches.
As for the debuting side Qarabag, they already got more points than they probably thought they would get when they saw the group stage draw of this edition of the Champions League,
being able to get 2 points on a super strong group like this, something they managed to do with 2 fantastic draws against Atlético de Madrid, both at home and in Madrid.
The team is coming off a good streak of results internally, but they conceded a heavy loss at home against the English champions on the previous round.
Roma vs Qarabag – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On a fundamental encounter for the Romans, who need to win to ensure they stay in the Champions League and qualify for the next stage,
I can only see them beating the Uzbeks, even because the visiting side is clearly the weakest one in this group.
