As for the Europa League way, the Spanish team didn’t manage to win the group. Contrary to the majority of the betting predictions they finished behind Osmanlispor.

Before the start of the season the sports betting companies considered Roma to be one of the main favorites of the Scudetto race. And at this moment the Giallorossi really do chase Juventus in the Serie A, although they have little chances to catch up with the leader. They have 7-point deficit from the Old Lady, but they are able to become at least the vice-champions. It should be mentioned that according to the betting markets Spalletti’s side have been an overdog at the Europa League previous stage and they have confirmed it winning the group.

While choosing a bet you should take into account the fact that Villarreal are not infallible at home now. In their last 7 home matches they got 2 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss in all competitions. So, Roma are really able to challenge their opponent and to make the half of the work before the return leg. Since the start of the new year the Giallorossi gained 3 victories out of the 4 away matches. In addition, they score in each of these games. The betting experts notice that Roma will still miss Florenzi and Totti, while Villarreal will play without Soriano.

The bookmakers don’t name a clear favorite of the upcoming fixture: Villarreal – 2,60, Draw – 3,25, Roma – 2,80. However, Roma’s overall chances to get past the Spanish team are estimated higher: Roma – 1,62, Villarreal – 2,28. As both teams have a good attacking potential it is recommended to bet on “Both Teams to Score”(1,80). Besides, you can try to bet on “Total Goals by Away Team over 1” (1,74). Apart from that, a draw is definitely worth backing.
