AS Roma vs Chelsea

Competition –¬†UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Stadio Olimpico

Date: 31st October 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Roma and Chelsea look like the best teams in their group currently and with Atletico Madrid struggling to win games they look likely to be the two teams to qualify.

The last game at Stamford Bridge was very entertaining as the two teams played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Roma almost winning after falling 2-0 behind in the first half.

AS Roma have gone on to record three consecutive wins against Torino, Crotone and Bologna but these victories have been 1-0 each and they will be looking for another scrappy win that would take them top of the group here.

Chelsea followed up that 3-3 draw with Roma with three consecutive wins of their own.

They have been high scorers this season unlike last season where they won the title based on a solid defence.

They have scored 52 goals in just 15 games this season keeping 5 clean sheets while away from home they have netted 17 times in 6 games with five of those games seeing them score at least 3 goals.

With AS Roma also scoring in almost all their competitive games this season, goals at both end is highly likely in this game.

Both teams have won one, drawn one and lost one in their last three meetings.
