Check out our predictions of the day for Roma vs Brighton

Prediction 1: Roma x Brighton / Roma to win

Brighton does not seem to be at a level where they can compete with Roma away from home after losing 3-0 to Fulham last weekend.

Albion would probably use a narrow loss in this first leg to gain momentum for next week’s match at the Amex.

Roma should easily defeat their Premier League opponents, as they have won 13 of their 19 home games across all competitions.

Prediction 2: Roma x Brighton / Over 3.5 goals

With five of Brighton’s previous twelve games going over 4.5 goals and their open style of play potentially leaving them exposed. The home team might win with goals scored at both ends.

Prediction 3: Roma x Brighton / Both teams to score

With a respectable goal-scoring average in their last 19 Europa League outings. Brighton has scored three goals or more in ten of those encounters. Given that eight of AS Roma’s previous twelve Europa League games have produced more than 2.5 goals, they may likely have a challenging evening ahead.
