Gent-Roma, the importance of scoring an away goal (Stats)

Marco Iacobucci Epp /

The Belgian team has been conceding goals in their last 4 matches. Roma would need at least one goal to stay safe. Gent-Roma will be an exciting challenge.

The next Europa League clash Gent-Roma will be pivotal for the Giallorossi. Fonseca’s men need a great performance in Belgium to get access to the next round.

The Lupi collected two wins in their last two games but the next European challenge against Gent will be very tough. Roma hope the Belgian team confirms their negative trend having conceded at least one goal in their last four games.

Both sides have been experiencing defensive issues in the last period:

  • Gent | More than 2.5 goals: 6 out of 8;
  • Roma | More than 2.5 goals: 4 out of 5;
  • Both team scoring: 6 out of 8.

Gent seem to be a team capable of scoring quite easily. In their last two Belgian First Division games, the team managed by Jess Thorup scored 7 goals conceding 3. Only Roma managed to stop their strikers recently.

The Giallorossi kept a clean sheet against Gent and Lecce albeit their latest Europa League performance at the Stadio Olimpico was far from convincing.
