Trabzonspor vs AS Roma, UEFA Conference League qualification, 19.08.2021
Jose Mourinho’s tenure in AS Roma officially kicks off on Thursday night as they travel to Turkey to take on Trabzonspor in the first leg of their Europa Conference Qualification final.
This is likely to be a very competitive first leg with both sides keen to take control of the tie.
22Bet Welcome Bonus have a wide array of exciting options for this game and we will highlight a couple of them in this preview.
Trabzonspor joined this competition in the third round and were taken to the limit by Norwegian outfit Molde, needing penalties to overcome them in the 2nd leg after both games ended in stalemates, the first leg 3-3 in Trabzon and 1-1 in Molde. They showed great character to come through the shootout against a hostile away crowd.
They followed that up with a tremendous 5-1 victory over Yeni Malatyaspor in their Turkish Super Lig opener at the weekend to set the early pace in the domestic title race.
Coach Abdullah Avci has a number of experienced players who the club signed this summer including the likes Marek Hamsik and former Roma players Gervinho and Bruno Peres and he will be looking to challenge for honors domestically and possibly earn a slot in the group stages.
After taking over the reins at the end of last season, Mourinho’s priority at this start of his Roma career will certainly be to secure their slot in Europe, where he has made a name for himself at his various managerial stops.
This will be his and Roma’s first competitive game since the end of the season. They have had a run-out with some friendlies though, the last of which came against Moroccan side Raja Casablanca who they beat 5-0.
Roma have done some brisk trades in the summer, bringing in the likes of Rui Patricio, Eldor Shomurodov as well as former Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham, who may not be ready for this game yet. That notwithstanding, they still have enough quality to take control of this tie.

TRABZONSPOR VS AS ROMA BETTING PREDICTIONS
This is one of the more interesting ties of this round. Trabzonspor believe they have a chance and will certainly be up to the challenge. However, it is difficult to imagine Mourinho-led team tumbling at this early stage of the competition. We anticipate a classic Mourinho script here. A disciplined defensive formation along with a ruthless counter-attack. The 1st half of the game is likely to be a bit tactical as both teams try to measure out the other. Goals are likely to come at a premium in that 1st half and we are therefore backing Under 1.5 1st Half Goals @ 1.41 as our initial betting tip today.
Although Trabzonspor have already had a few games under their belt, Roma have a lot more experience in this competition overall and they have that bit of extra quality across just about every area of the pitch. The opening goal is going to be key both in this game and in this tie and that’s exactly what Mourinho is likely to hammer into his squad coming into the game. Roma to Score the 1st Goal is priced @ 1.65 at 22Bet and we feel there is value in picking it as our last tip here.
