Roma vs HJK
UEFA Europa League
Date: 15 September 2022, Thursday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).

Roma slipped up in the UEFA Europa League opener, falling 2-1 away at Ludogorets even days ago.

The defeat caught us by surprise since Jose Mourinho had sent a very strong lineup to the pitch in Razgrad.

The Romans will now be highly motivated to get their first win on board in Matchday No 2 as they play host to Finnish side HJK on Thursday evening at Stadio Olimpico.

A win here is an imperative for the Special One because Roma are about to face Real Betis in a double-header in the third and the fourth round of the group stage respectively.

La Lupa are indeed huge favorites here against HJK who showed their limits in the opening round’s fixture against Real Betis.

The 0-2 loss to the Spaniards in Helsinki was not as painful as was the manner in which the Finnish champions played throughout the whole course of the game.

Toni Koskela’s troops failed to register more than four shots in total last week against Los Beticos, only one of which went on target.

HJK will be forced to park the bus here against Roma as well. It is hard to see any scenario in which the Finnish side could escape the defeat and actually show something against the Italian heavyweights.

We will keep a close eye on Paulo Dybala who was on target in a 1-2 victory away at Empoli on Monday evening.

Roma moved up to fifth in the Serie A standings after success at Stadio Carlo Castellani.

Roma have a perfect record of two wins in two matches at home in this term of Serie A. They have bagged four unanswered goals past Monza and Cremonese in the process.

Knowing that HJK offered nothing in the final third last week against Real Betis, we are very much tempted by the 1.66 odds offered for the Romans to win to nil. We will also back Roma to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the 1.50 odds.
