AS Roma take on Manchester United at the Stadio Olimpico, knowing that they have a mountain to climb, as they are 6-2 down from the first leg at Old Trafford, following a rampant second-half by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, as they overturned a 2-1 deficit at half-time to win the game 6-2, thanks to goals from Bruno Fernandes (2), Edinson Cavani (2), Paul Pogba and Mason Greenwood.
Paulo Fonseca’s side have been involved in three matches in their last five games which have landed in the over 2.5 goals market, in 3-1 and 3-2 defeats against Torino and Cagliari, as well as the first leg of this tie.
United have also been involved in three matches which have had over 2.5 goals including the home leg of this tie, having beaten both Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley 3-1 in early and mid-April.

Meanwhile, Bruno Fernandes has five goals and three assists in seven matches this season and actually won the competition’s Golden Boot last season.
