Prediction and betting advice for AS Roma vs. Ludogorets on October 3, 2022

AS Roma face a make-or-break clash against Ludogorets at the Stadio Olimpico in Group C of the Europa League on Thursday.

As things stand, the Giallorossi are heading back to the Conference League and must beat their Bulgarian rivals to progress into the knockout rounds along with group winners Real Betis.

Both teams are tied on seven points each, but the Eagles are ahead of Jose Mourinho’s side on head-to-head record, having beaten them 2-1 on the opening day in Razgrad.

However, Roma have gained momentum in their campaign following four wins from their last six games in all competitions, including a 2-1 defeat of HJK last week.

Ludogorets are on a good run of form too, winning five of their last six games. The only time they failed to win was a 1-0 loss against Betis in the Conference League at home last week.

The Eagles only need a draw in Rome to progress into the knockout stages.
