AS Roma will face Real Sociedad in the last 16 of the Europa League with a strong sense of optimism. Despite having come a long way to reach this stage, Roma under coach Jose Mourinho have shown their strength in the competition. Roma finished second in Group C and beat Red Bull Salzburg in the playoffs to secure their place in the Round of 16.
Roma faced a tough challenge when they lost 1-0 to Red Bull Salzburg in Austria, but they responded with a 2-0 win at the Stadio Olimpico. Belotti and Dybala scored in the first half to help Roma progress to the next round of the tournament.
Roma head into the match against Real Sociedad with more confidence, having beaten Juventus, a tough opponent, in Serie A last weekend. The hard-fought win helped them reclaim their fourth spot in the league table from AC Milan.
Like all teams coached by Mourinho, Roma’s European home form has been impressive. The Giallorossi have lost only two of their last 33 home matches in European competition, winning 24 of them. However, those two defeats were against Spanish sides – Real Madrid in 2018 and Real Betis in this year’s group stage.
Roma have won seven of their last eight matches at home and kept a clean sheet in seven of the wins. Mourinho’s defensive philosophy may not be pleasing to the eye, but it is very effective on the pitch.
Last season, Roma won the European Conference League title under Mourinho’s leadership. This season, they have the opportunity to enhance their European success with the Europa League trophy. Although the journey ahead will be difficult, in the absence of Mourinho, Roma remains a dangerous opponent for any team.
To match historical records, Real Sociedad needs to beat Roma over two legs. However, they struggled against the Italian side, winning just one of their six games against them in European competition.
Real Sociedad reached the last 16 as the top team in Group E, having won all three away games without conceding a single goal. They are the only team to achieve this feat in this year’s Europa League group stage.
Even though they were close to Real Madrid and Barcelona in the La Liga standings, Real Sociedad recently slumped and slipped to fourth in the league standings. Coach Imanol Alguacil needs to find a way to get his team back on track if they are to beat Roma.
