Second 10 stake tip of the month and we have a big match tonight between Roma and Lyon where I'm expecting goals. First leg was very funny to watch. Lyon took the lead in the early stages of the game but Roma were able to come back and to lead 1-2 after the end of the first half. During 2nd half, things changed and Lyon with an amazing comeback scored 3 goals and won that game 4-2. Tonight, Roma need to win with 2 goals of difference but considering how they are defending, I think that it will be not that easy.
Roma are not in a good form. They are coming after a great win on the road 0-3 against Palermo (one of the worst team in Serie A) but before that, they lost 3 games in a row against Lazio (derby), Napoli (key game for 2nd place in Serie A) and Lyon (1st leg in Europa League). At home, they are a very strong team. They lost last 2 games played (against Napoli and Villarreal) but before that, they were able to win 11 games in a row playing in front of their fans. In 8 of these 11 games, they have scored at least 3 goals...absolutely amazing! On the other hand, I have to say that their defense is weak as they have conceded at least a goal in 6 of the last 7 games played.
Lyon, on the other hand, are in amazing form. They are coming to this game after winning 6 of the last 7 games played (+ a draw) and their offense is on fire! They have scored 29 goals in these 7 games (an average of 4,14 goals per game!!) conceding 7 (at least once in 5 games). They are an offensive minded and today they will not play defensive minded trying to defend the result...this would be a suicide. Tonight, they will have their chances to score one or even more goals as Roma's defense is weak (and we saw what happened in the 1st leg) but, on the other hand, I don't think that they will stop Roma's attack that is very dangerous especially when playing at home.
Considering first leg result, Roma will play offensive minded from the 1st minute of the 1st half trying to score. Lyon will be very dangerous especially on counter attacks and will have their chances to score too. Everything can happen, Roma will have their chances (Spalletti said that they have 60% of qualifying) but their defense will concede at least once imo. All I see here is both teams playing to score just as happened in the first leg and I will bet on over 3,5.
