Roma vs Ajax Prediction
Roma were a little fortunate to escape Amsterdam with a 2-1 first-leg lead last week , but with a couple of away goals in the bank, the Italian outfit are favourites to progress to the Europa League semi-finals on Thursday.
Ajax should have really won the first leg. They had a lead thanks to a great goal from Davy Klaasen, while Dusan Tadic missed a penalty to make it 2-0. Erik ten Hag’s troops had nine shots on target but scored just one goal on the occasion.
AS Roma are by no means a strong defensive team and we can’t see them keeping De Godenzonen at bay once again. They shipped two goals to Napoli and Sassuolo each before the mentioned first leg in Amsterdam.
