Roma vs Lyon Prediction 16 March 2017

Tournament: Europa League
Location: Olimpico Stadium
Match date: 16.03.2017 at 20:05

On March 16 2017 at 20:05 in the regular second leg game of the Europa League play-offs Round of 16 at the Olimpico Stadium in Rome the local Roma meet their competitors from Lyon.

Roma are trying their best to reach their competitors Juventus in the national elite division, yet they are not successful at it. Moreover, they made a serious mistake a few games ago as they lost to Napoli 1:2 which was their first loss in the home match in the current season. As a result, Roma are on the second place in the standings of the Serie A and are 8 points below the leaders and 2 points above their closest competitors. The previous game in France was a very interesting one. There were a lot of goals scored. Roma missed a fast goal, yet they didn’t give up. They were leading on the 33rd minute of the match already. Anyway, Lyon scored three more goals and won.

Lyon are in wonderful conditions at the moment. They score a lot and will probably try hard to take the position in the Champions League zone. The victory against Toulouse 4:0 in the previous game was the 16th one in the national championship. We must also admit that Lyon scored 29 goals in their latest 7 games and they only concede 7 goals. We should also admit that in the previous round of the Europa League Lyon outplayed AZ Alkmaar with 11:2 goal difference after two legs.

The upcoming game will be the fourth one played between them in their history. We must remind you that Roma haven’t won a single game against Lyon in their history as they drew twice and Lyon won once. Roma haven’t lost at home for 17 games and after that they lost their two latest once in a row. Even though it will be a difficult game for Lyon, we still think that they won’t lose with more than 2 goals difference.
