Roma vs Liverpool Semi-Final Second Leg Betting Preview
Roma vs Liverpool Predictions
Date: May 2nd, 2018
Liverpool were cruising and looking comfortable but Roma’s two late goals have set-up a fascinating second leg in the Champions League. The Reds were rampant and the brilliance of Mo Salah against his former club has helped them accumulate a decent-sized lead to take to the Stadio Olimpico.
Roma have already successfully mounted a second-leg comeback in this competition when unexpectedly ousting Barcelona from the Champions League and they will be hoping to repeat the trick on May 2nd.
It won’t be easy for the Serie A side and it is expected to be an evenly matched contest.
According to our predictions, Liverpool are expected to narrowly shade this game and are priced at a reasonable 8/5 with Betfred whilst the hosts begin as favourites and can be backed at 29/20. The draw, which would easily send Liverpool through to the Champions League final is another likely outcome and is 11/4.
Liverpool will be without Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain whose season-ending injury unfortunately rules him out of the 2018 World Cup and they are starting to look a little light in the centre of the park. Jurgen Klopp will be hoping his side don’t suffer any more setbacks in that department.
A Low Scoring Affair Anticipated in Rome
Very few Champions League semi-finals can boast seven goals and although many punters will be expecting another glut of goals here, it may be best to back a low-scoring 90 minutes. According to our predictions, Under 2.5 Goals is a possibility and it can be backed at 2/1 which offers plenty of value.
Roma were extremely well-organised against Barcelona and they will be aiming to set up in a similar fashion once again. Eusebio’s side will be hoping to avoid gifting the visitors an away goal which could effectively book Liverpool’s place in the final. The showpiece event takes place in Ukraine at the end of May and both of these sides will still feel as though they have a chance of making it through.
