CSKA Sofia vs AS Roma
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 10 December 2020
Kick-Off at 17.55 UK
Venue: Stadion Vasil Levski, Sofia.
Head manager Paulo Fonseca can use the upcoming UEFA Europa League match against CSKA Sofia in Bulgaria to give an opportunity to some youngsters and reserve players. AS Roma have secured position number one in Group A thanks to last week’s 3-1 win against Young Boys.
Bulgarians are the only team undefeated by the Italian side. Hosts also have zero chance to fight for 2nd position after collecting just two points in five duels, but they will surely play for pride. As expected, visitors are labelled as big favorites in this clash at 1.61 rate.
CSKA Sofia vs AS Roma Head-to-head
As already mentioned above, CSKA Sofia have caused a big upset by holding AS Roma to a goalless draw in Italy in the 2nd round.
These two teams have met in UEFA Europa League group stages in 2019. Roma were victorious in both occasions with a total goal difference of 5-0.
Roma faced Bulgarian teams in the past seven times – they have five wins, one draw and one loss.
CSKA Sofia vs AS Roma Prediction
Taking a look at First Bulgarian League standings, CSKA Sofia are having a blast in the last couple of weeks. Team is currently in red-hot form after winning four games in a row and keeping three clean sheets. They have managed to beat Tsarsko Selo, Montana, CSKA 1948 and Botev Plovdiv.
All these victories had a massive impact on standings too, jumping to 3rd place and catching up with leading duo. So far Europa League has been a mess for them, but we have faith CSKA will find a way to Roma’s net at least once.
Visitors can freely use reserve line-up for this clash, so it’s realistic to expect goals. Fonseca’s squad had a disappointing 0-0 draw against Sassuolo last weekend, and will surely look to rest key players for Sunday’s duel versus Bologna.
