Betting Tip: Roma +1.00 @ 1/1 with bet365

UK punters will put Real Madrid in this week’s Champions League accumulator without a moment’s thought. The Spanish side are one of the big names in the competition, they have Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, what’s not to like?

However, there are plenty of reasons to hesitate before lumping on a team who are now managed by the untested Zinedine Zidane, not least because these are two-legged Champions League ties and Real don’t actually need to win this clash.

4/5 seems plenty short enough about a team whose recent away form looks distinctly patchy. Los Merengues have only won five of their eleven La Liga matches on the road this term, with Real Betis and Valencia recently holding the Madrid side.

Roma know that they can’t go to the Bernabeu chasing the tie so they have to be positive, although the Italian side did draw 1-1 with Barcelona during the group stage.

The Wolves have only lost one home match in Serie A this term, with four straight wins suggesting that Luciano Spalletti’s team are in decent shape for this contest.

Edin Dzeko will be leading the line for Roma, with Mohamed Salah showing why Chelsea signed the midfielder for £11 million, with the Egyptian having scored eight goals in Serie A this term.

Yes, Cristiano Ronaldo is a star talent and he’s flanked by the excellent James Rodriguez, although Real have only kept one clean sheet in the past five clashes.

Therefore, we’re siding with Roma to do a job on them tonight.
