AS Roma vs. Brighton Predictions

Where: Stadio Olimpico, Rome, ItalyWhen: Friday, March 8, 01:45 AM

The Italians have been on fire since Daniele De Rossi took over the team, and they come into this confident and in search of a win. Brighton started the second part of the season solid but is now unstable and apparently on the downhill. The Seagulls will have a home-court edge in this one, yet that won’t mean a thing if they fail to record a positive result in this battle.

AS Roma vs. Brighton Preview

AS Roma

Il Lupi has one loss, one tie, and eight victories in the past ten events, and we are free to say that De Rossi upgraded the team compared to Mourinho. It seems that the former midfielder allowed the players to be more creative, emphasizing the offense and giving more freedom to the forwards. 

Sure, there are some problems in the back line, but for the moment, high efficiency is covering everything. The last two events saw Roma netting seven times, and in the past ten appearances, they’ve netted two or more goals on nine occasions. 

All but one of the past five meetings at the Olimpico saw both teams netting or over 2.5 hits, which tells that Roma plays exciting matches in front of its own crowd. 

Brighton

Brighton has three in a row without a victory and only one triumph in the previous five contests. Besides that, the Seagulls posted three losses and one tie. Their performances significantly dropped, and the main reason is a dull offense. 

Believe it or not, Brighton couldn’t score over the previous 180 minutes, which is strange for one of the most efficient teams in the league over the past year or so. The fact that they played on the road isn’t an alibi because the rivals were Wolves and Fulham.

By the way, Brighton is terrible away from the Amex Stadium, having four defeats and a win over the previous five outings. Four of those encounters saw over 2.5 goals.

AS Roma vs. Brighton Predictions

Clearly, the respective matches of these two units bring plenty of goals, and that’s the reason why we picked over 2.5 goals. Many would say that this is the first leg of the elimination round and that it might see a more conservative approach on both ends, yet we disagree because neither Roma nor Brighton don’t know how to play like that. 

Our verdict: Over 2.5 goals
