Roma set to progress
Roma need to overturn a 4-2 deficit to advance to the Europa League quarter-finals and there is no reason why they should not do it.

The Serie A side made an excellent start to the first-leg clash at Parc Olympique Lyonnais, going into the break 2-1 up thanks to goals by Mohamed Salah and Federico Fazio.

However, the Ligue 1 side came roaring back during the second 45 minutes to score three more goals via Corentin Tolisso, Nabil Fekir and a stoppage-time strike from Alexandre Lacazette after Mouctar Diakhaby had put them ahead early in the first period.

Les Gones hold all the aces but will find things tough in front of what is sure to be a packed house at the Stadio Olimpico on Thursday evening.

Roma coach Luciano Spalletti has already sounded a warning to the opposition that his men have no intention of exiting Europe’s second-tier competition this week and they can be backed at n/a to win.

“In the first match we made some bad choices. Tomorrow I can assure you we won't just be strolling around the pitch,” he said at his press conference on Wednesday.

The Eternal City outfit have enjoyed a solid campaign domestically and sit eight points behind table-topping Juventus in the race for the Scudetto.

And, with eight league wins from their last 10 matches, they are certainly in red-hot form to take on the French, with 61 goals scored already this season.

Lyon know that they will progress with a clean sheet but that appears unlikely given the Italians’ prowess in front of goal, while any sort of draw at n/a would also be enough for Bruno Genesio’s side to advance to the last eight.

Edin Dzeko has been Roma’s star up front this term and the former Manchester City ace has urged the fans to get right behind the team for what he feels will be a tougher task than the first leg as Lyon may well ‘park the bus’ to protect what they already have.

An early strike would change everything and, should the home side be able to bag two, it would force the opposition to come out and attack due to Roma’s two away goals, leaving them vulnerable to the counter-attack.

The Giallorossi have been roundly praised for their brand of football this season as they have been pleasing on the eye, but Dzeko feels it is time they proved to everyone just how good they are.

Lyon are a decent outfit but Roma will have too much for them at home and could put the same number of goals past Anthony Lopes as they conceded on March 9.
