Over their past half dozen games, the sum total of 20 goals have flown in for both sides combined (at an average of 3.33 goals per game) with 14 of these belonging to Servette FC. Such a pattern isn’t assured to follow through into this match, however.

Team News: Servette FC
We think that Les Grenats look set to use the 4-4-2 formation, utilising Jeremy Frick, Théo Magnin, Steve Rouiller, Yoan Severin, Bradley Mazikou, Miroslav Stevanovic, Timothe Cognat, Gael Ondoua, Bendegúz Bolla, Dereck Kutesa and Chris Bedia.
Team News: Roma
Roma manager José Mourinho has to currently contend with reduced team options. Chris Smalling (Tendonitis), Marash Kumbulla (Cruciate ligament injury) and Tammy Abraham (Cruciate ligament injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
We reckon that i Giallorossi could decide to elect for a 3-5-1-1 lineup by sending out Rui Patricio, Gianluca Mancini, Diego Llorente, Evan NDicka, Rick Karsdorp, Bryan Cristante, Leandro Paredes, Edoardo Bove, Leonardo Spinazzola, Paulo Dybala and Romelu Lukaku.
Our thinking is that Servette FC could well find it tough to see themselves scoring against this Roma lineup who we think should get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
Therefore, we predict a good tussle with a 0-1 win for Roma at the end of the 90 minutes.
Should be interesting.
