A.S. Roma fights for campaign success

AS Roma is currently on the verge of being eliminated in the Europa League, after being defeated by Red Bull Salzburg on their first leg. The first leg between these two teams ended in a 1-0 win for Salzburg. It did not turn out the way Roma expected it to be, as they are heavily favored on that match. Salzburg on the other hand defied all odds and proved their doubters wrong. Due to this result, Roma now requires to be at their top performance to turn the tables around. They still have a chance though, as they only sustained a one goal deficit due to their loss. This meeting will be on February 24, 2023, at 4:00 AM (GMT+8), with Roma as hosts.

This will only be the second meeting between these two teams, with their first coming from their first leg. Both teams are actually coming in this match with a good record, considering the format. The hosts are doing well at home, as they won seven of their last eight matches at home. They last experienced a loss way back December 2022, when they had a 2-1 loss against Cremonese. The visitors on the other hand are also doing well on the road, winning their last three away games. Their last loss was dated back in November 2022, when they were defeated by AC Milan in a score of 4-0.

It is unfortunate that this squad suffered a 1-0 defeat on their last match. Due to this, they are now hopeful to overturn the deficit and make a turnaround in this match. That loss actually lower their confidence of entering the next round in the Europa League. Since they are the underdog team in this match, they need to give their all, if they will want the next round. They can gain confidence from the fact that they are coming from a win. During their Serie A league match, they were able to overcome Hellas Verona in a score of 1-0. This win moved them at the third of the Serie A league table. Additionally, they are also doing well at home, winning seven of their last eight home games.

Unfortunately, Roma is facing injury crisis, especially when it comes to attacking. Tammy Abraham sustained an eye injury during their match against Verona, and will miss this game. On the other hand, Paolo Dybala, and Lorenzo Pellegrini are both a doubt in this game, dur to their health and injury issues. Nemanja Matic is expected to take part in this match.

In this series, it was Salzburg who has the upper hand in this match, after winning their first meeting. Considering how eager Roma will be in this match, this squad should remain focused. Luckily for them, they are doing well even in their domestic league, where they continue their search for the title. They are from a 3-1 win against WSG Triol on their last meeting. With that, they now won their last three matches across all competitions. Salzburg actually played in the Champions League during the first-half of the season. However, due to the unfortunate turn of events, they were demoted in the Europa League. They are hoping to widen their lead against Roma to carry on the playoffs round.

Amar Dedic, and Oumar Solet returns for Salzburg, as well as Noah Okafor, and Fernando. They have no fresh health concerns for this squad.
