Roma finished only seventh in the last season of Serie A. The board decided to hire a different manager, who would help the team win trophies. Jose Mourinho seems a perfect choice. So far, the Portuguese manager has won both official games with his new team. In the opening game of Serie A, Roma defeated Fiorentina (3:1). And in the first leg of the final qualification round of the Conference League, the Wolves got an away win over Trabzonspor (2:1). Lorenzo Pellegriniand Eldor Shomurodovscored the goals for Roma.
Trabzonspor started their European campaign against the Norwegian club Molde. They drew in both legs (3:3 and 1:1), and the winner was determined by a penalty shootout: Trabzonspor advanced to the next round. Abdullah Avci's team is looking really sharp in attack, and they have won 19 out of 20 matches across all competitions. However, they concede regularly, too. After losing the home fixture to Roma in the Conference League, Trabzonspor outplayed Sivasspor in the Turkish Super Lig (2:1).

This bet played in the last 5 games of Trabzonspor.

Roma approached the start of the season in good form. With inspiration from the new manager, the Italians can fight for victory in the Conference League. As for Trabzonspor, they struggle to play in the European club competition after the domestic championship (this is the problem of all Turkish teams).
If we take into consideration motivation, home factor, and the performance last week in Turkey, we are convinced that Roma will be victorious in the upcoming game.
