AS Roma vs Brighton preview: Roma in good form for Europa League clash with Brighton

Roma are in good form ahead of their Europa League clash with Brighton on Thursday. The Italian side are unbeaten in five games in all competitions, and have won four of those. They are also strong at home, having won seven of their last eight European games at the Stadio Olimpico.

Brighton, on the other hand, have been in poor form recently. They have won just one of their last five games, and have failed to score in three of those. They are also inexperienced in Europe, having never made it to the knockout stages of a major European competition before.

Roma team news

Roma will be without injured striker Tammy Abraham, but they have other attacking options in Paulo Dybala and Andrea Belotti. Dybala has been in good form recently, scoring three goals in his last four games. Belotti is also a proven goalscorer, having scored 100 goals in Serie A for Torino.

Brighton team news

Brighton will be without injured striker Evan Ferguson, but they have other attacking options in Danny Welbeck and Neal Maupay. Welbeck has experience of playing in Europe, having won the Europa League with Arsenal in 2019. Maupay is a good goalscorer, having scored 27 goals in the Premier League for Brighton.

Prediction

Roma are the favorites to win this game. They are in good form, have a strong home record, and have more experience in Europe than Brighton. However, Brighton are a dangerous team and could cause Roma problems. I predict a 2-1 win for Roma.
