Man United vs Roma Predictions


Manchester United have been solid in their run to the UEFA Europa League semi-finals. I'm expecting more of the same on Thursday night in the first leg, with under 2.5 goals the best bet at Old Trafford.

  • Man United have won 7 of their last 9 matches (all competitions).
  • Man United have won their last 3 matches (UEFA Europa League).
  • Man United have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 5 matches (UEFA Europa League).
  • Man United have kept 5 clean sheets in their last 6 matches (UEFA Europa League).
  • Man United have won 4 of their last 5 matches against Roma (UEFA Champions League).
  • Roma have lost their last 2 away matches (Serie A).

Head to Head


Manchester United are unbeaten in the last five meetings against Roma, winning four of them.

The last competitive meetings came in the 2007/08 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals with United winning 2-0 in Rome and 1-0 in Manchester.

Man United Form


Man United saw a five-game winning run ended as they drew 0-0 with Leeds on Sunday. The stalemate saw the Red Devils close to within 10 points of leaders Man City.

It was only the second time in the last nine games that United had failed to win.

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's side won five straight before heading to Elland Road, including a 4-0 aggregate win over Granada in the Europa League quarter-finals.

United also recorded Premier League wins over Brighton, Tottenham and Burnley in the recent run.

Man United Team News


Defender Phil Jones and forward Anthony Martial remain United's only absentees through injury.

Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay all missed the second leg against Granada through suspension. All three are available again.

David De Gea should start in goal in place of Dean Henderson.

Roma Form


Roma sealed a spot in the Europa League semi-finals with a 1-1 draw at home to Ajax, which secured a 3-2 aggregate victory.

But the stalemate in Rome has proved to be the start of a four-game winless run for Paulo Fonseca’s side.

They followed the Europe League draw with a 3-1 defeat at Torino in Serie A.

Having then drawn 1-1 at home to Atalanta, Roma lost again at the weekend as they went down 3-2 away to Cagliari.

Roma Team News


Long-term absentee Nicolo Zaniolo remains sidelined with a knee injury.

Winger Pedro is also out with injury, but left-back Riccardo Calafiori is expected to be available.
