AS Roma vs Real Sociedad 09.03.2023
Having successfully seen off RB Salzburg in the previous Round (Europa League Play-off), the Italian side, AS Roma will be hoping to get past Real Sociedad in the Round of 16. The victory against the Austrian side was scrappy but Jose Mourinho’s men were more than happy to take it.
Roma got a major boost last weekend courtesy of their 1-0 win over heavyweights Juventus in the Serie A. With that confidence, Roma will go into this fixture looking to make the most of playing at home.
For Sociedad, they have been less than impressive in recent weeks with only one win in their last five games. This is a source of worry for Imanol Agualcil who can’t seem to get his charges firing. He also has a string of injuries ahead of this tie.
That said, both sides are expected to be conservative in their approach and we expect a tepid game with little or no goalmouth action. Therefore, we expect less than ten corner kicks in this match.
Main tip: Under 9.5 Corners (go to tip details)
