Barcelona vs AS Roma Preview

Barcelona vs AS Roma

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Estadio Camp Nou

Date: 4th April 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

This season looks like it will be a very successful one for Barcelona as they have reached the final of the Copa del Rey, are miles apart in the race for the La Liga and have been handed a favourable draw in the Champions League.

They come into this game after surviving a serious scare at the hands of Sevilla at the weekend.

They were 2-0 down with less than 3 minutes of normal time to go, before a quick-fire double from Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi helped them to a 2-2 draw.

That draw makes it 11 wins and no losses from their last 17 games ahead of this match up with Roma.

They have also impressed defensively this season as they have kept 11 clean sheets from their last 13 home games.

AS Roma are also having an impressive season in the Serie A even though a challenge for the league title is currently beyond them.

The Rome-based side are currently 3rd in the league table and they have been impressive in the Champions League this season also.

They have won 4 of their last 5 games and have no losses from those encounters.

Away from home, Roma have only 4 wins from their last 12 and their last 2 away days in the Champions League have ended in losses.
