Astra will play host to already qualified Roma in the UEFA Europa League group stage match-day 6 as they hope to accompany Roma into the round of 32.
Astra are second in the group with 7 points, they are 2 points ahead of Austria Wien in the Third place. They are seeking for their first home win in the competition as that will see them through to the next stage. Also Astra will go through if they lose and Austria Wien fail to beat Viktoria Plzen on same night. However, Austria Wien have a head-to-head advantage over Astra and will eliminate Astra if they finish on same point.
Meanwhile, Roma have already clinched the top spot of the group with 11 points to their name. They will go through to the next round of the competition regardless of the outcome of this game. The reverse of this fixture ended in a 4-0 win for Roma, they will be hoping for a repeat of that Performance.

Astra Giurgiu vs Roma: Prediction
In our opinion, winning this game is far from Astra and this may jeopardize their round of 32 ambition. The visitors are far more superior team to them, having gone unbeaten in their last 3 away games. Also Roma have scored whooping 15 goals in their last 4 group E games, this can make any team tremble. Looking at this stats, coupled with Astra’s poor home result in UEFA this season, we expect a win from Roma.
