Barcelona To Get The Job Done Against Roma At The Stadio Olimpico

Roma v Barcelona - Tuesday 10th April 2018, 7.45pm (Stadio Olimpico)

Barcelona followed the script perfectly last week at the Nou Camp, and now just ned to provide a satisfying encore this Tuesday at the Studio Olimpico in Rome in the second leg of their Quarter-Final Champions League tie.

Those who saw only the scoresheet of last week’s game could think typical Barcelona fortuity after going ahead with two own goals, yet Ernesto Valverde’s men created their own luck and were dominant throughout the game from start to finish. Edin Dzeko’s consolation brought parallels of the two teams’ last meeting two and a half years ago. For further echoes, backing the same Rome result- a 1-1 draw- at the Stadio Olimpico is best priced with betfair and William Hill at 8/1.

Tips Barcelona to win by two goal margin    Best Bet @ 4 / 1  
Barcelona score in both halves @ 6 / 5  

Barcelona can afford to take their foot off the gas, and are cruising through the season; Lionel Messi got a hat trick in La Liga at the weekend at home against Leganes. They’re still on course to gain yet another treble, which would remarkably be their third in nine years. Those romantics who believe Messi could get another three within the space of four days, he is best at 16/1 with Boylesports.
Match Odds:

Roma haven’t reached the last four of the competition since 1984, and followed up the defeat to Barcelona with a disappointing 2-0 home loss to Fiorentina. They’re extremely lucky that the two Milan teams below them dropped points as well which slightly eases their concerns about not making the top four. Edin Dzeko is almost always a good shout to chalk up a goal, by far Roma’s top scorer this season and having scored five in his last seven, is priced at 7/1 to open the scoring. The onus is on him more, as Roma are also suffering injury setbacks to Diego Perotti and Cengiz Under.

Ousmane Dembele has been starting fairly regularly for Barcelona and scored in the second leg of the last round against Chelsea. Paddy Power give him a decent 7/2 as an anytime goalscorer in this Roma game. Luis Suarez registered his first goal in the competition this season last week; for him to replicate it and Barcelona to win is 11/8 (boylesports). A good bet should be to see Barcelona to score in both halves. William Hill are offering 6/5.

Roma v Barcelona - Head-To-Head, Form + Odds

Roma should come out of the gates strongly and try and rectify some of the mistakes they made last weekLadbrokes and Coral are also giving Barcelona to come from behind and draw at 7/1.

No team this season has scored more than two against Barcelona- and this has only happened on three occasions. Roma need to score three goals to progress to the Semi-Finals of the Champions League. It’s time to say goodbye to Eusebio Di Francesco’s men. The question is, by what margin should they exit. For those expecting another Barcelona masterclass, sensibly backing Barcelona to win by 2 goals is best prices 4/1 with boylesports.
