Roma vs Ajax Match Preview and Team News
Roma goes to the clash leading the tie 2-1 from the first leg in Amsterdam. They staged a fine comeback away from home, helped on by a missed penalty from Dusan Tadic and followed on it with a 1-0 win over Bologna in Serie A. Roma have scored two or more in three of their last five matches, and with three wins in their previous five matches, they can smell a semi-final place in this competition. Their home form should give them the hope they need going to this game, having three clean sheets and three wins in the last four matches at Olympic Stadium. Further, the win away to Ajax was their fifth straight in the Europa League, and they’ve scored two or more in each. They’ve lost twice in the 11 Europa League matches this season. Diawara has excellent control of the ball, he can play in several positions, and every team needs a player like this. Pedro enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He didn’t have a lot of minutes in Chelsea, and he signed for Roma.
Ajax joined in at the knockout stage and won their four straight Europa League matches before meeting Roma. They have a big task in Rome but prepared for that with a narrow win over Waalwijk in the Dutch Eredivisie over the weekend. The loss to Roma is the Dutch side’s only defeat in the last 26 matches, so they’ll be looking to bounce back, and a run of five straight wins will give them the belief they need at this stage. Ajax’s two top keepers, Maarten Stekelenburg and Andre Onana, are out with injury and suspension, respectively, and the goalkeeping duties have been passed on to the inexperienced Kjell Scherpen. The young keeper was responsible for Roma’s first goal in the first leg, and this will remain an area of concern for the visitors. Dušan Tadić is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance. David Neres plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable.
