FC Barcelona travels to Italy to seal their place in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. The home team, AS Roma, knows very well that it will be very difficult to overcome the 4 goals of Barça. The only advantage that the home team has against the powerful Catalan team is that Barça does not usually score many goals in Italy.
FC Barcelona: Ready for the quarter finals.
Barça is doing one of the best seasons of the last 3 years, so far they are undefeated in La Liga (spanish soccer league), they have 38 games without losing, is one of the biggest records that have been imposed in the local spanish league. In the UEFA Champions League they beat Chelsea, and Sporting to reach the round of 16.
The home game (camp nou) against AS Roma started slowly, the team found it difficult to find a way to reach the Roma area and score goals, but help was on the way, the own goals of the AS Roma players (from Rossi, Manolas) helped the home team to regain confidence. The game ended 4-1 and Barcelona travel to Italy with the hopes of scoring a goal and not allowing AS Roma to score goals.
In Italy, things have always been difficult for Barça. In Italy it has always been a problem to win, the background of a couple of years ago against AC Milan and the Internazionale have shown that scoring away from home is a serious problem, especially if it is in Italy.
For this game Barcelona has available the same 11 players who started the game at the Camp Nou against AS Roma: Ter Stegen, Cillessen, A. Ortolá, N. Semedo, Piqué, I. Rakitic, Sergio, Denis Suárez, A. Iniesta, Suárez, Messi, O. Dembélé, Paulinho, Paco Alcácer, Jordi Alba, S. Roberto, André Gomes, Aleix Vidal, Umtiti, Yerry Mina and Vermaelen. The only two players who do not travel are Lucas Digne (injury) and Coutinho (he can not play in champions for his transfer from Liverpool).
AS Roma: Nothing to do
The home team can try to overcome the 4 goals of Barcelona, they just have to make 3 goals and keep the result, but AS Roma is nothing without Totti, Bruno Conti said that this week before the game. AS Roma has a team full of stars, but they have always been eliminated by Barça at home.
I like this game, but Barcelona the last time they could not win against AS Roma was in 2015, the game ended in a draw, 1-1 and it was very difficult to maintain the result. The pressure will be on AS Roma, to make 3 goals or more is very difficult against a defense of Barça much more committed to maintain the result and advance to quarter finals.
