Roma vs Sheriff Tiraspol

, KO: 17:45 Dec 14, 2023, Stadio Olimpico
Sheriff Tiraspol

Roma will be aiming to finish top of Group G in the Europa League as they host Sheriff Tiraspol on Thursday. While they still have to rely on the result in the other game, the capital club should do their own part by beating the whipping boys of the group.

Roma were held to a 1-1 draw by Servette in their previous Europa League fixture, which means they are two points behind leaders Slavia Prague heading into Thursday’s finale. Having already secured a berth in the next phase, they will be keen to finish as group winners but must rely on the result from the other fixture.

The capital club have been in good form lately and are unbeaten in their last five matches across all competitions. However, they were held to a 1-1 draw by Fiorentina in a Serie A fixture last weekend with Romelu Lukaku sent off after getting their goal.

The Stadio Olimpico is where Roma often do their best work as they are unbeaten in their last eight home matches across all competitions. Jose Mourinho’s men have claimed seven wins in that run but are without a clean sheet in the last three.

Sheriff Tiraspol have been out of their depth in Group G of the Europa League, failing to secure a single win. They have been beaten four times in five matches, including a 3-2 home defeat to Slavia Prague last time out.

That poor form is not just limited to the Europa League as Slavia Prague head into Thursday’s clash off the back of two straight defeats. Roman Pylypchuk’s men were beaten 3-1 by CSF Balti in their previous domestic fixture.

The defeat to CSF Balti also highlights an erratic record for Sherrif Tiraspol on their recent travels. They have claimed two wins and suffered three defeats in their last five away matches across all competitions.

How the bookies view it

Roma have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 2/13 by Coral to claim the win. An unlikely victory for Sheriff Tiraspol is valued at 22/1 by Unibet while a draw is set at odds of 7/1 by William Hill.

Head to head

Roma claimed a 2-1 victory over Sheriff Tiraspol in the reverse fixture back in October with Romelu Lukaku netting the winner.
