AS Roma vs Manchester United, Europa League 06.05.2021
After the crushing victory at Old Trafford, Manchester United make the trip to Rome for their Europa League semi-final second leg against AS Roma on Thursday.
The two clubs convene endured difficult weekends with United seeing their weekend game postponed amid fan protests and Roma succumbing to their third successive defeat which led to their manager getting the axe and former United boss Jose Mourinho taking over the reins. We will explore Booster99 Welcome Bonus prices for our betting tips for this game.
AS Roma looked to be on course for a first leg upset at Old Trafford after they had turned around a 1-0 deficit to a 2-1 lead heading into the break. That was not to be however as they no answers for a rampant United second-half performance as the Red Devils ran riot to win the game 6-2, which set the record for the worst loss by an Italian team in the semifinals of a European competition.
Things went from bad to worse as they lost their league match 2-0 at mid-table Sampdoria which almost sealed their fate as far as qualifying for next season’s Europa League. That was their third loss in four games and coming hot on the heels of losses to Cagliari and Torino, teams in the lower half of the table, the board were left with no option but to terminate the services of Paulo Fonseca, with Mourinho appointed to take charge.
With their pride battered to a pulp, Roma’s immediate task here will be to try and restore some of it, even if it may not overturn this massive deficit.
After a lacklustre first-half performance, Manchester United lived up to their billing as the kings of comebacks as midfield maestro Bruno Fernandes and the lethal target man Edinson Cavani put up virtuoso performances, bagging a brace apiece as they ran riot to win it 6-2, virtually punching their ticket to Gdansk.
If and when get the job done, it will be a welcome relief for United boss Solskjaer whose reign at the club has seen them fail to break the semi-final ceiling of cup competitions in four tries, including last in this very competition when they lost to Sevilla in the re-arranged one-off tie.
Solskjaer will look to rally his troops to get the job done. They are odds on favourites to win it all.

AS ROMA VS MANCHESTER UNITED BETTING TIPS
The appointment of former United manager Jose Mourinho as Giallorossi’s new head coach from next season adds a bit of a twist to this encounter but that alone will not be enough to significantly turn the raging tide against AS Roma. Mourinho’s former club has perfected the art of counter-attacking football. With a comfortable four-goal cushion to hold on to, they will be happy to soak in any pressure from the hosts and hit them on the counter. Unlike the first leg that had bucket loads of goals, we do not quite expect the same here. Roma will play for pride and United will be happy to keep what they have. We are therefore backing Under 3.5 goals @ 1.72 as our first betting prediction here.
With progression to the finals a mere formality, United’s mission will be to try to ensure they can get there in one piece. They will therefore be keen to not commit silly challenges that can result in unnecessary bookings that may get some of them ruled out of the finals. As such we feel this will be a relatively uneventful game and we reckon Under 4.5 bookings @ 1.62 with Booster99 is too good to turn down for our final call.
