Roma vs Wolfsberger Prediction

Roma bounced back to winning ways in their last group clash by pulling off an emphatic 3-0 win over Istanbul Besaksehir on the road. The hosts were just too hot to handle in that latter matchup. And slotted all three goals within the opening forty-five minutes.

It is also worth mentioning that the home team looked organized inside their own defensive third as well and thwarted their foes from taking no more than one measly shot on target.

With eight points to their name, the Italian outfit are currently playing second fiddle to Borussia Monchengladbach in Group J, albeit only on h2h points.

On the other hand, Wolfsberger were at the losing end of a 1-0 scorecard in their last clash at home, with the table-toppers themselves.

At the moment, they are on a three-match losing streak in Group J. Disappointingly, they have admitted defeat without so much as a consolation goal to their name in each of those clashes.

Furthermore, the visitors have not been faring well in their domestic campaign either. They have just two wins to boast of from their last eleven games in all competitions.

In sharp contrast, Roma are unbeaten in their past five fixtures on home soil. The home side have not lost any of their group clashes at Stadio Olimpico either, the last of which was a 1-1 draw against Borussia Monchengladbach.

Given that the hosts have been a force to reckon with in the comforts of their home, Wolfsberger AC are more than just likely to be in for a humiliating defeat this week.

In addition, the Italians have scored five goals from their last two matchups at home in Group J. Meanwhile, Wolfsberger have found the back of the net four times from their respective outings so far.

With both teams certainly posing as a threat in the final third, a high scoring affair is certainly in the reckoning come Thursday.
