Tip Roma - PFC CSKA Sofia

Roma PFC CSKA Sofia Prediction published on September 14, 2021 at 5:19 AM - modifiedat September 14, 2021 at 5:22 AM

The Jose Mourinho impact has rubbed off at AS Roma and they are enjoying a great start to the season. Ahead of their home game against Bulgaria’s CSKA Sofia in the Europa Conference League’s Group C, Roma are leading in the Serie A standings. They go to this game on five straight wins and their most recent, a 2-1 victory over Sassuolo sparked wild celebrations from the manager. It was his 1000th managerial game and ending with a last minute winner from Stephan el Sharaawy capped it well. Roma have scored two or more in their last five matches, registering a total of 14 goals in the process and all the last five matches have produced over 2.5 goals. At home, they are unbeaten in the last nine, with seven wins. This will be the fifth meeting between the two sides. Roma have won two of the earlier meetings while one ended in a draw and one a loss, but Roma have three clean sheets in the four meetings.

CSKA Sofia are coming from a 1-1 draw with Slavia Sofia, the second time in five matches that they’ve failed to win. They have three clean sheets in five matches but have scored more than a goal in just one of their last six matches. In their last five matches they’ve scored six goals and conceded three. In the last of their qualification matches, CSKA Sofia lost away to Viktoria Plzen but turned it around to win 3-0 in extra time and secured this group stage slot. It is that away run that they’ll be called upon to fix, if they wish to progress here. CSKA Sofia haven’t scored more than a goal in their last four away matches and they are winless in their last two away matches in the Conference League. They’ve failed to score in two of the last three away matches in this competition too. It will be tougher for them with striker Josue Caicedo suspended for this game, the Ecuador forward having scored three in the last four matches.
