Draw

If anyone can find a way to earn a point or play a closed game it's Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese tactician will no doubt make sure his team is prepared defensively to keep the distance from their opponents regarding a 2-0 lead that has been made as a big advantage before the return leg. Even though Roma lost over the weekend against Sassuolo in a match that featured seven goals, and lost Lorenzo Pellegrini in the process of injury, there will be a different kind of preparation for the match in Spain. At the same time, Real Sociedad is still fourth in La Liga but has failed to win a game in their last four league encounters. The first Real Sociedad vs Roma prediction is about Jose Mourinho, and the way he will prepare his team for the big match.

Team Previews, News, and Real Sociedad vs Roma Lineups

Real Sociedad

The Spanish outfit has had an excellent season thus far, they are in a big fight for Champions League football next season as the San Sebastian team is holding onto the fourth place in La Liga trailing Atletico Madrid only on goal difference. Aritz Elustondo, Sadiq Umar, and Marin Merquelanz are out with injuries.

Potential lineup: Remiro, Gorosabel, Zubeldia, Le Normand, Rico, Silva, Zubimendi, Merino, Illarramendi, Kubo, Sorloth.

Roma

Jose Mourinho was left frustrated once again during last weekend's controversial Serie A match against Sassuolo which Roma stunningly lost 4-3. It's been a tough few days for the team, but as they are traveling to Spain with a two-goal cushion, they are confident that it will be enough to see them through to the quarterfinals. Andrea Belotti, Lorenzo Pellegrini, Ola Solbakken, and Ebrima Darboe are missing the trip to Spain with health issues.

Potential lineup: Patricio, Karsdorp, Mancini, Llorente, Smalling, Spinazzola, Cristante, Matic, El Shaarawy, Abraham, Dybala.

Player to Watch: Alexander Sorloth

The Norwegian towering forward scored 13 goals this season in all competition and has been a terrific addition to Real Sociedad coming from Leipzig last summer as a loanee. He also contributed with a couple of assists in a terrific season for the Spanish team.
