AS Roma hosts Ajax in the second leg of the Europa League quarterfinals. The match will be played on Thursday, April 15th at Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Paulo Fonseca's team achieved an excellent result in the first match against Ajax, having won with a 1-2 score despite a rather mediocre game. After the hosts' goal from Davy Klassen, the Romans pulled themselves together and turned the tide of the match thanks to the accurate shots of Lorenzo Pellegrini and Roger Ibanez. The success in Amsterdam motivated AS Roma to gain a home victory over Bologna in Serie A last Sunday (1-0). The only goal was scored by Borja Mayoral, who upset the opponents’ goalkeeper shortly before the break. Bologna missed some of the most dangerous chances and failed to break through the wolves' defense. Despite the victory, the Romans remain outside the top-6 of Serie A. With 54 points, they occupy the seventh place, lagging one point behind the sixth Lazio. At the same time, the Eagles have a game in hand.
After a failure in the home match of the Europa League, Ajax played against one of the outsiders of the Eredivisie, Walwijk, on Sunday. And the Jews gained a victory with a score of 1-0. After an early goal scored by Sebastian Haller, Ajax controlled the course of the match and did not allow the opponent to deliver a single shot on target. Success in Waalwijk brought Ajax closer to winning the Dutch championship ahead of schedule. Having 69 points, Ten Hag's footballers are 11 points ahead of second-best PSV that played one more match. Therefore, Ajax will most likely get another title in the remaining six matches of the championship.
A goal-scoring home defeat to Roma puts Ajax in a difficult position. To advance to the next round, the Dutch need to score two goals. For this reason, Ten Hag’s team will have to go all-in from the first minutes and put pressure on the defense of the Romans. On the other hand, the Wolves are not distinguished by a confident game in their penalty area, so they will also bet on the attack. Because of this, it is highly likely that the game will be wide-open and will be remembered for a large number of goals. Ajax has scored at least three goals in three of its last four matches, while Roma has done it in two of the three games. Beyond that, three goals were scored in the match in Amsterdam.
