Previously, the Wasps could not advance beyond the qualifying rounds in the European Cup tournaments. Over the last few years they have been consistently making the playoffs. Last season, the yellow-blacks even managed to sensationally beat Real Madrid (2-1) at the Santiago Bernabéu in the match of the second round of the group stage of the Champions League.
However, it is not necessary to talk about the progress and prosperity of the Tiraspol Club. Last summer, he lost most of his core players and also experienced a head coaching change. Yuri Vernidub left his position. As a result, in the last draw for the European Cup, Sheriff did not perform as well as the previous year.
This season the yellow-blacks failed to qualify for the Champions League. In the first qualifying round they barely beat Farul (0:1 and 3:0 until today), and then they lost in the second qualifying round against Maccabi Haifa (1:0 and 1:4 until today). Thus, the Wasps qualified for the Europa League.
Sheriff first beat BATE (5-1 and 2-2) and in the playoff round they defeated KI Klaksvik (1-1 and 2-1). Will the yellow-blacks manage to make a splash and beat Roma? Overall, they have a good chance of making the playoffs. In addition to the Romans, the group included Prague “Slavia” and “Servette”. The opponents are quite comfortable.

The same cannot be said for the Roma. He has made great strides in recent years under Jose Mourinho. Last season the Wolves won the conference league and last season they reached the Europa League final, where they lost to Sevilla (1-1, 1-4 Pen).
In summer the Romans became quite strong. They signed former Zenit striker Serdar Azmoun, Belgian top scorer Romelu Lukaku and Leeds defender Rasmus Christensen on loan. The Giallorossi also acquired two midfielders from PSG: Renato Sanches and Leandro Paredes.
Unfortunately, there were some painful losses. The outstanding defender Roger Ibáñez and the experienced Nemanja Matic left Roma. As a result, the Romans started the season poorly. In the initial three rounds they tied with Salernitana (2-2) and also lost to Verona (1-2) and Milan (1-2).
Then Mourinho intervened. The newcomers have become somewhat accustomed to the Roman equipment. In addition, Paulo Dybala has recovered from an injury. The Portuguese coach chose the right words to motivate and used the changes wisely. In the end, their players beat Empoli (7-0) on the last day of Serie A with a great score away from home.
The Giallorossi thus repeated the achievement of 17 years ago. He has not scored seven goals in a match since 2006, when he defeated Catania (7-0). Empoli conceded more than five goals in an Italian championship match for the first time in history.
Dybala scored a double. Lukaku and Sanches also scored a goal each. It is possible that in the next match the Romans will achieve another effective victory. W2 + TO 1.5 goals is taken as odds of 1.88. Yes, Mourinho can resort to some experiments. However, we must not forget that he needs to play as a rookie.

Unfortunately, Mourinho will not be able to fine-tune the teamwork of all the signings. Rasmus Christensen and Serdar Azmoun were not included in Rome’s Europa League squad due to restrictions imposed by UEFA.
The Romans usually have problems in the group stage of the European Cup. In the 1st round match of the last Europa League they lost to Ludogorets. And the penultimate season, in the matchday 3 match of the conference league, they lost to Bodø-Glimt (1-6) with a great score. But there is a feeling that this time everything will be different. The Wolves have a stronger squad. The power of the attack has increased significantly.
Prediction and bet for the Europa League match “Sheriff” – “Roma” on September 21, 2023
“Sheriff” repeatedly forced the fight and defeated strong opponents. Despite the departure of many prominent players and Vernidub, he does not seem like a scapegoat. But even though the match will be played in the yellow-black stadium, there is more belief in Roma’s victory. He strengthened very well in the summer and finally broke the series of failures. It seems that in the future Mourinho will only take advantage of his success.
Tender: Roma victory and total of more than 1.5 goals in 1.88.
