A defeat would not compromise the qualification
An important but not decisive match. In case of defeat the situation of the Giallorossi would be complicated and in that case the group would be extremely balanced. As reported by Il Corriere dello Sport, in fact, given the direct clash between the two current rivals of the Giallorossi, Basaksehir and Wolfsberg, even a draw would have been excellent for Fonseca's men. However, in case of defeat, the transition to the sixteenths would not be compromised. By winning the last two fights, the home one against the Austrians and the one away from Istanbul, Roma would go on to the next round anyway, with high chances of finishing in any case at the top of the group.
