Atletico Madrid vs AS Roma Preview

Atletico Madrid vs AS Roma

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Wanda Metropolitano

Date: 22nd November 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Atletico Madrid are having a tough season and Diego Simeone will be counting days before he can call on Diego Costa and Vitolo.

They could easily be mistaken for easy targets but that is a dangerous assumption as they have the ability to stifle opponents even though they are not on form offense-wise.

They are currently unbeaten in their last nine games including a draw against city rivals Real Madrid this past weekend.

They have also not conceded more than one goal since late September and they will be looking to at least keep that record intact.

AS Roma travel to Madrid with hopes of keeping hold of their top spot in the group.

They won their last game against Lazio 2-1 which makes it six wins on the bounce.

They beat Chelsea 3-0 in their last Champions league game and their travelling fans will be in confident mood when they make their travel arrangements for this game.

With Atletico struggling for form, there is a good chance that they might get a win here as they almost did at Stamford Bridge.

These sides have met just once which was the reverse of this fixture in Rome earlier in the season and that game ended in a less than impressive 0:0.
