The hosts are seemingly out of the UEFA Europa League after a first-leg away defeat

In the Premier League, Brighton & Hove Albion remain competitive as they stand in eight place out of twenty-odd clubs. This season also happens to be a historic affair. Brighton’s first-ever appearance in European competition is going well as they are in the knockout rounds of the UEFA Europa League. However, a 4-0 first-leg defeat in the Round of 16 remains a matter of concern.

AS Roma are the Italian outfit who handed this thumping defeat to the Seagulls at the Stadio Olimpico. Daniele De Rossi’s side have already put a leg forward in the quarter-finals with this victory. Under former legendary player De Rossi, Roma have been resurgent after parting ways with Jose Mourinho. Giallorossi are already in the Europa League group stage qualification spot in Serie A while they will look to push for a UEFA Champions League qualification spot.

Kick-Off:

Thursday, 14 March 2024 at 8:00 PM UK

Friday, 15 March 2024 at 1:30 AM IST

Location: Falmer Stadium

Form

Brighton (in all competitions): W-L-L-L-D

Roma (in all competitions): D-W-W-W-W

Players to Watch

Simon Adingra (Brighton)

Although Roberto De Zerbi’s side couldn’t find a goal in the first leg, Simon Adingra was causing troubles from the left wing. He had even set up striker Danny Welbeck twice perfectly, who was even on target with both headers only to be kept out by opposition keeper Mile Svilar. Adingra has scored 6 goals in 21 PL appearances this season.

Paulo Dybala (Roma)

The player who kickstarted the 4-0 rout back in Italy. Paulo Dybala scored the opening goal inside the 15-minute mark. Dybala has scored 12 goals while also providing 7 assists in the Italian first-tier league this season. The 2022 FIFA World Cup winner with Argentina seemed to be in some discomfort last game against Fiorentina. With timely recovery, the player will be a boon for his side.

Match Facts

  • The visitors are undefeated in the last seven games in all competitions
  • As per UEL history, no team has overturned a four-goal difference after the first leg
  • Romelu Lukaku is just a goal shy of tying himself with Edin Džeko as the player to score the most goals (8 goals) for Roma in UEL

Injury & Team News

The troubled hosts have winger Solly March still out for a few days. Veteran James Milner’s fitness status is also unclear. A foot injury keeps fullback Jack Hinshelwood out. Joao Pedro and Kaoru Mitoma also are sidelined with injuries.

The visiting team will be without the forces of Tammy Abraham, Renato Sanches, Rasmus Kristensen and Chris Smalling. Influential player Paulo Dybala seemed to be in discomfort in the Serie A clash against Fiorentina yesterday. Hopefully, he will be in the starting XI.

Head to Head

Predicted Lineup

Steele (GK); Lamptey, van Hecke, Dunk, Igor; Gilmour, Groß; Buonanotte, Enciso, Adingra; Welbeck

Roma predicted lineup (4-3-3):

Svilar (GK); Celik, Mancini, Ndicka, Spinazzola; Cristante, Paredes, Pellegrini; Dybala, Lukaku, El Shaarawy

Match Prediction for Brighton vs Roma

Brighton may have given their fans the joy of a lifetime by being in a European competition for the first time in their history but probably the exit is near. It will be very hard to beat the Italians after a 4-0 deficit from the first leg. Expecting the visitors to win in the second leg as well.

Prediction: Brighton 1-2 Roma (aggregate: 1-6)
