Roma are all but through to the next round of the Europa League after trashing Villarreal 4-0 in the first leg in the round of 16. Roma boss Luciano Spalletti is hence likely to ring the changes and give Dzeko, Nainggolan, Salah and Strootman a rest, meaning 40 year old Francesco Totti is likely to get a rare start. Though he still knows how to find the back of the net, Roma will be missing the goals of Dzeko (19 goals), Salah (9 goals) and Nainggolan (7 goals) tonight.
Villarreal are probably realizing their chances of going through are slim to none. The visitors are however likely to want to restore some pride and will not want it to get embarrassing again. In the league, The Yellow Submarines have only scored 9 goals while conceding only 6 in 11 games away from home and are low scoring overall. We don’t expect this to be a free scoring affair.
