Roma Vs Manchester United: Prediction, Team News, Stream And Odds

Manchester United appear to have firmly ended their semi-final hoodoo as they take on Roma in the second leg of their Europa League tie.

Last week's crushing 6-1 success at Old Trafford sees the Red Devils with one foot in the final, as they visit the Italian outfit at the Stadio Olimpico.

The build-up to the game - United's biggest of the season - has been dominated by the fallout from the fan protest against the Glazer family before Sunday's game against Liverpool was postponed.

Should they get across the line in Rome, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be relieved to break a run of four successive semi-final defeats during his relatively brief reign - including last season's one-off tie with Sevilla.

Undoubtedly, the Red Devils are now firm favourites to lift their first trophy since 2017's final success under incoming Roma manager Jose Mourinho - with only Villarreal or Arsenal left standing in their way.

Here, SPORTbible takes a look at everything you need to know ahead of the big game.

Roma vs Manchester United predictions and betting odds

Though the final 6-2 scoreline did not equal United infamous 7-1 Champions League thrashing of the same opponents back in 2007 - a game in which current boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a substitute - the margin of victory was as impressive as their second-half display.

With a four-goal deficit to make up on Thursday, Roma approach their forbidding task deep in the midst of their worst form of the season.

However, they will not go down without a fight, though - but they're winless in their last six outings and have lost four of their last five.

There could be goals in this one but United should see Roma off without much trouble.

Roma are 13/5 to win, with Manchester United priced at 17/20 to come away with the victory. A draw is priced at 3/1.

Odds are correct at the time of publication and are, as always, subject to change.

Prediction: 1-3

Roma team news and injuries

Roma have confirmed that their first-choice goalkeeper Pau Lopez will miss the remainder of the season - and will require shoulder surgery after being forced off in the first leg.

Former coach Paulo Fonseca also had to prematurely withdraw midfielders Jordan Veretout and Leonardo Spinazzola last Thursday, with the pair remaining doubtful ahead of the return, having missed out on Sunday.

Both Amadou Diawara and Carles Perez were also sidelined against Sampdoria, but Bruno Peres should overcome a knock sustained at Marassi and centre-back Gianluca Mancini has served his European suspension and will be available to play.

Manchester United news and injuries

There are no fresh injury concern for Manchester United, with Anthony Martial and Phil Jones still out.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should make changes, though not too many, so Mason Greenwood should start and Edinson Cavani may be rested.

Nemanja Matic and Alex Telles will hope for some minutes, while Eric Bailly continues to work, but to full fitness after being sidelined.
