AS Roma hosts Istanbul Basaksehir in round 1 of the Europa League group stage. The match will be played on Thursday, September 19th at Stadio Olimpico (Rome)
Eminent Italian Roma approached its start in the current European competitions in high spirits, having finally gained its first victory in the new Serie A. The Wolves beat Sassuolo in the hockey style with a 4:2 score, having scored a sack of goals already in the first half. Moreover, the impression was that the Romans backed off in the second half, frankly sparing their visitors. Perhaps Roma aimed at saving some forces just for the upcoming match... And so, the attacking link of the capital's Wolves made a terrifying impression at some moments, and all the players acting ahead showed amazing mutual understanding. Starting from the ageless Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko and ending with the new acquisition of Rome in the person of the notorious Armenian striker Henrikh Mkhitaryan. And the latter has already proved his qualification in a debut match against Sassuolo, having scored a beautiful goal!

As for Istanbul, the team began its path in the current international competitions with the qualification of the prestigious UEFA Champions League. The Turks ingloriously crashed out of from the first run, losing both games to Greek Olympiakos (0:1 in Turkey and 0:2 in Piraeus) ... I would like to add that almost all Turkish clubs play in European competitions traditionally unsuccessfully just away, where they often trip out, having lost the usual loud support of their stands.
I think that Roma is unlikely to experiment with the lineup much, but it will not have any problems with arranging an effective double in this duel. Finally, I will remember another goal firework performed by the men of Paulo Fonseca, which took place at the Stadio Olimpico in the first round of the new Italian regular season. The Yellow-Reds showed a real shootout with Genoa, which ended in a battling 3:3 draw!
Prediction for the match: AS Roma to score over 1.5 goals
