Roma 8/15 to win against CSKA Moscow in Champions League opener
Competition: Champions League
Market: AS Roma to win against CSKA Moscow
Odds: 8/15 @ Betfair
Serie A runners-up AS Roma are back in the Champions League this season, and their first game of their European campaign will be against Russian outfit CSKA Moscow. It’s been four years since they last took part in the Champions League, with their runners-up finish in 2009/10 the last time they had qualified until now.
Rudi Garcia’s men have started the new Serie A season in perfect fashion too, winning both their league games so far without conceding against Fiorentina and Empoli.
CSKA Moscow are a tricky side, but Roma have been near impossible to beat on home soil. Last season, they lost just once at the Stadio Olimpico in the league, so it’s very unlikely they will drop points tonight.
Betfair are giving odds of 8/15 for Roma to win against CSKA, with the Italian giants boasting a considerably stronger squad. The likes of Radja Nainggolan, Miralem Pjanic, Daniele De Rossi make up a very strong midfield that helps Roma to control the game. Little gets past them either.
