The Yellow Submarines continuously struggle on finding their good form as they drop points in La Liga pulling them down the league standings. The club needs to prove that they deserve to earn a spot in the competition.
Villarreal has one of the best defensive records in Europe which will be their edge against the intruders. Aiming for a win here will boost-up their confidence in the domestic tournaments that they are into. This is the only chance that they have – the team really needs to pick themselves up if they don’t want to bid a farewell on their goal of winning the title this year.
The weight is heavy as Roma tries to extend their three consecutive winning streaks in all the competitions that they are into. Confidence must be at its peak after the Italian side created a back to back clean sheet match over Fiorentina and Crotone.
They must also move-on from the happenings during the group stage in UEFA Champions League wherein they were outcasts by big team. Giallorossi will need to double their effort as they are indeed weak away from home.
Considering their recent performance it will be AS Roma that will be proclaimed as winners in the end with a narrow triumph.
