With both teams on fire in front of goal in the Europa League, Al Hain-Cole is backing the Giallorossi to come out on top in a high-scoring clash

Roma will be aiming to overturn a 4-2 aggregate deficit when they welcome Lyon to the Stadio Olimpico for Thursday’s Europa League last 16 clash.
 
Luciano Spalletti’s men let slip a 2-1 half-time lead to end up on the losing side in France but are 7/10 (1.70) favourites with Betway to keep their chances of progression alive by coming out on top here.
 
However, Les Gones arrive in Italy with six wins and no defeats to their name in the last seven fixtures, and can be backed at 15/4 (4.75) to book their place in the next round with another win in this one.

The guests have not been involved in a single draw in any of their last 12 fixtures in this competition, but are on offer at 3/1 (4.00) to hold out for a stalemate that would see them reach the quarter-finals.
 
Having scored two goals away from home, the Giallorossi will have been kicking themselves after conceding three times in the second half, with Alexandre Lacazette’s last-minute fourth putting them in a particularly tough position.

Averaging 2.7 goals per game at home this season, the hosts will at least feel confident of narrowing the deficit against a team that has lost four and won just one of their last six matches on the road.
 
However, that sole recent away victory was the emphatic 4-1 thrashing of AZ in the last round of this competition – just one of the five times in the last six games that Bruno Genesio’s team have struck four goals or more.
 
With another high-scoring clash looking inevitable between two teams that have scored a combined average of 4.5 goals per game in this season’s competition, odds of 11/10 (2.10) are not to be missed on Roma coming out on top and three or more going in on Thursday.
