Football Bet of the Day - Thursday 15th February

  • Romelu Lukaku to score anytime @ 15/8

Striker Romelu Lukaku has been rediscovering his form this season and has been a huge asset for Roma. The Belgium international has nine goals in Serie A, but most of them arrived in the first half of the campaign.

He has one since the turn of the New Year but that isn't surprising given what has happened recently, with De Rossi succeeding Jose Mourinho in the dugout.

The former Roma midfielder is now trying to get the club back on track both domestically and in Europe, and he boasts a top striker in Lukaku to spearhead his revolution.

Lukaku has enjoyed a decent return in the league but his exploits in the Europa League have been even better. The 30-year-old has scored five goals in six appearances, only blanking in one of Roma's group stage fixtures.

He was the Giallorossi's star man in their group campaign and he will now be even more important as they aim to make it to the knockout stage.

Supported by the talented Paulo Dybala, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Stephan El Shaarawy, the Belgian should not be short of service against Feyenoord on Thursday.

Lukaku's physicality makes him so hard to defend against and the Dutch side are going to be in for a long evening in trying to keep him quiet.

De Rossi is trying to enforce change at Roma and a good marker of progress would be getting the club through the play-off round. He will rely heavily on Lukaku to get the team through this two-legged tie, and at 15/8, the attacker is worth a punt to get on the scoresheet in this crucial encounter.

Romelu Lukaku to score anytime at 15/8
