Roma hosts Qarabag in a match from Group C

Roma hosts Qarabag in a match from Group C of the UEFA Champions League. The game is going to be played at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

 

Roma are expecting this game with a thought for the next phase of the competition. The Italians know that a win over Qarabag will guarantee them a place in the 1/8-finals of the Champions League. Right now the Wolves are second in this group with 8 points, having two points advantage in front of the third Atletico Madrid.

 

It’s interesting to note that Roma even have some chances of winning the first place in the group. They are trailing on just two points behind the leader Chelsea and they have better stats in the direct clashes with the English team. It means that if Roma wins against Qarabag and in same time Chelsea doesn’t win against Atletico Madrid, then Roma are going to win this group. Which is going to be a major success for this team.

 

But Qarabag are not a team to be underrestimated easily. Just ask Atletico Madrid about that. The Azeri club is a debutant in the competition, but they already made two impressive draws against Atletico in this group. This proves that they are a team which is hard to beat and Roma should not forget that. If Atletico fails to reach the 1/8-finals of the competitions, this will be because of Qarabag.

 

Of course Roma are the major favourite here. The Italians are aware of Qarabag’s dangers and they shall not underrestimate them. Roma made a great performance in this group so far and they would want to finish it in the same way.

 

The first game between Roma and Qarabag in Azerbaijan ended with a difficult 2-1 win for Roma. Can they do it again now?
