Match status: 2020/21 Europa League - 1/16-finals
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome)
Following a frustrating draw against Benevento in the Serie A, Roma will quickly turn their attention to business in Europe as they aim to book a spot in the last 16 of the Europa League. Although they hold a two-goal lead, they will be expected not to take chances against a dangerous Braga side.

After succumbing to first-leg defeat in the competition last week, Braga picked up from where they left off in domestic action, bouncing to victory against struggling Tondela last weekend. Even though this contest might seem a little out of reach as the aggregate scoreline suggests, they will travel to Italy with the goods.

AS Roma vs Braga Team News

In their last fixture, Roma were held to a goalless stalemate by Benevento in the league. Despite a red-card advantage for them early in the second half, they were contained by the opposition's defence. In fact, they were limited to a paltry total of four shots on goal as their dominance on the ball didn't count for anything at the end of the contest.

Having accrued a total of 44 points from 23 games in the league, they sit in 4th-place - nine points adrift the top spot, and a point above Atalanta who occupy 5th-spot. The Giallorossi seem to be out of title contention, as they continue to battle for a top-four finish at best.

Paul Fonseca will push his boys to get the job done when they take on this opposition on their turf. With the repaired relationship between the Portuguese manager and his captain Edin Dzeko, the Italian giants will be buzzing for another win.

Braga's last outing saw them return to winning ways against Tondela in the Primeira Liga. They went in at break with a 3-goal lead, and shortly after restart, they made it four courtesy of Lucas Piazon's second of the match. Although Tondela pulled halved the deficit with the two late goals, the three points were all but sealed for the hosts.

Os Arcebispos have amassed an impressive total of 43 points from 20 matches in the Portuguese top flight, and theu currently sit in 3rd-place on the league standings. In fact, they have won five of their last six league matches - highlighting their overall good performance in the league.

Carlos Carvalhal's side will hope they are able to put behind them their disappointment in the first leg of this fixture.  With their first-ever meeting with the Italian side ending as one to forget, they will seek to make this one a memorable one.

Their fall at home in the first leg is not unconnected to the dismissal of Ricardo Esgaio before the hour mark. As they couldn't muster a good response to Edin Dzeko's early opener after going a man down, they conceded a second in the dying minutes of the match.

Injured or Suspended Players

AS Roma: Nicolo Zaniolo, Chris Smalling, Marash Kumbulla, Riccardo Calafiori, Roger Ibanez and Davide Santon.

Braga: Francisco Moura, Iuri Medeiros, Andre Castro and David Carmo.
