Why Bet On AS Roma?
Why should you consider betting on AS Roma? The best reason would be because they’re playing solid soccer, having won two straight while going 3-1-0 over their last four. AS Roma comes into this affair off a commanding 3-0 shutout win over Chievo Verona on Friday as Edin Dzeko scored one goal and set up another. Dzeko, who also hit the crossbar, has now scored twice in three league matches.
Why Bet ON FC Porto?
Why should you consider betting on FC Porto in this one? The best reason would be because they’re a bit desperate after coming up just short in a pair of draws in their last two matches, including their 1-1 draw against Moreirense the last time out as Hector Herrera scored an injury-time goal to lift his team to victory.
An even better reasons to back FC Porto in this match is that they’ve been the better team at both ends of the pitch when it comes to Champions League play. FC Porto has scored 15 goals and allowed just six in a half-dozen Champions League matches this season.
Expert Analysis and Prediction
AS Roma might be playing at home in this affair, but I’m going to advise you to back FC Porto to get the huge road win simply because they’re the better team at both ends of the pitch. Not only that, but I still can’t get past FC Roma’s stunning 7-1 beatdown loss against Fiorentina in their Coppa Italia semifinals on Wednesday. I like FC Porto for the big road upset here!
