Real Progress

Roma surely won't go through but they are worth backing to score in defeat at the Bernabeu.

A very quick way of improving upon best odds of 2/5 that Real Madrid win at the Bernabeu on Tuesday night is to back Roma to score in defeat. That takes our price to a much more alluring 8/5 with WilliamHill.

Importantly, it looks the most likely outcome. Yes Zidane’s boys took charge of the tie with a 2-0 success in the Olympic Stadium but the Italians are no mugs as demonstrated by seven consecutive victories in Serie A.

Roma also managed to score seven times in three Champions League away games before Christmas without winning a single one. A 3-2 defeat to BATE, a 6-1 hammering to Barca and a 4-4 draw in Leverkusen show why this looks like a good bet!

For their part, Real always look liable to leave the back door open however prolific they are in attack. Last year they beat Schalke 2-0 in Germany only to sneak through after a 4-3 loss in their home leg.

We don’t need anything remotely as dramatic to profit on Tuesday.
