Match: AS Roma – Barcelona
Date: Wednesday, 15th September 2015
Start time: 19:45 pm
The winner of the Champions League Barcelona begin the defense of the award with the visit of Roma. The game of the “Stadio Olimpico” is on Wednesday at 21:45.
Finished second in Serie “A” last season, the team of AS Roma uastva for the second consecutive year in the group stage of the Champions League. In season 2014/15 “The Wolves” came in third in its group and failed to qualify for the eighth-finals.
Graduates of Luis Enrique performed quite poorly at home in Europe last season after losing three of its five meetings of the “Olimpico”. “The Yellow-Reds” scored a 2:1 in both matches against Real Madrid in their last meeting with the Spanish team. It was in the 2007/08 season in the eighth-finals of the Champions League. The overall balance of the team against teams from “La Liga” home six wins and five losses.
The upcoming game can be more specific about the legend Francesco Totti team that can score goal number 300 for the club in all competitions. The only absentee in the team of “Wolves” is miralem pjanić who got injured in a match for his national team against Andorra.
Last season, Barcelona won four of their six away games in the tournament, scoring a total of 15 goals away from home. In Italy, however, “Barcelona” pretty face resistance if they have only one win in their last six visits. Their only success was with a 3:2 over AC Milan in the 2011/12 season in the group stage. The overall balance of the team in the last 20 matches away to teams of Series “A” is six wins, eight draws and six losses.
After losing the Super Cup clash against Altletik Bilbao at the beginning of the season, Barcelona recorded a series of three consecutive wins in the league. So “Barcelona” are the only team with a full score of points after the first three rounds in “La Liga”. Over the weekend, Barcelona was heavily trip to Madrid and Atletico had to make a turn to win. With hits against “dyushekchiite” is reported Neymar and Messi, who was surprisingly left the reserve in this game.
In 2011/12 Luis Enrique led the Roma and excellent knowledge of the situation “Olimpico”. He did not do well at the head of the “wolves” after his team was in seventh place in the final standings and was released.
In the upcoming game specialist will be able to count on the injured Daniel Alves, Thomas Vermaelen and goalkeeper Claudio Bravo. But he will have the full attacking power that between the trio Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar ensures.
Barcelona beat Roma 3:0 in a friendly match at the Camp Nou on 5 August this year. Hit the success of Barcelona realised Neymar, Lionel Messi and Ivan Rakitic.
In season 2001/02 Roma won with 3:0 at home to Barcelona in the group stage match of the tournament. Now, however, “Barca” are the favorite according bukmeyarite and unlikely to lead to a similar result. However, I expect the home team to reach the goal in the opponent. Led by striker like Edin Dzeko and one of the most experienced players in the race – Francesco Totti, “The Yellow-Reds” will be very dangerous up front, while Barcelona will be without the starting goalkeeper Claudio Bravo. On the other hand there is no need enumerating what players have guests who will almost certainly razpishat at least once in the game.
