Salzburg vs Roma
UEFA Europa League

Venue: Red Bull Arena (Wals-Siezenheim).
Roma halted their push for the top-four finish in the Serie A with a dismal performance in a 1-1 stalemate away at Lecce on Saturday afternoon.
They share the third place with the likes of Atalanta and AC Milan, while sixth-placed Lazio are just two points behind in an exciting race for the Champions League spots in Italian elite class.
Jose Mourinho has won UEFA Europa Conference League with Roma last season. He will be looking to take the team to the crown in a higher-ranked continental tournament this time around.
The Romans will begin their Europa League knockout phase campaign this Thursday with the trip to Austria where they will battle Salzburg in the first leg of the playoffs round.
Salzburg have just played their maiden league clash of the year on Saturday when they dispatched Austria Lustenau 4-0 on the home patch.
They are six points clear atop the Bundesliga standings with 13 wins in 17 domestic league outings this term.
The Austrian champions had a dismal campaign in the UEFA Champions League this season, coming third in the group with Chelsea, AC Milan, and Dinamo Zagreb.
They had one win, draw, and loss each in three home outings against these rivals. The lone loss came to group winners Chelsea and it was only a narrow one (1-2).
Roma had the same record in their road clashes in the UEFA Europa League group. Nonetheless, we have to say they had much easier rivals in the likes of Ludogorets, Real Betis, and HJK.

- Salzburg and Roma did not have an opportunity to cross each other’s paths before.

Roma have only one win in four away games this year. Salzburg have been tough to break down in front of the home fans in the Champions League. We fancy the hosts to come on top in a close game without too many goal-scoring chances.
Salzburg to win & Under 2.5 goals FT is paid at the 5.50 odds. You can alternatively back the hosts to win 1-0 as the correct score option at the 8.50 odds.
