Atlético de Madrid vs Roma – UEFA Champions League: In one of this 5th round matches of the Champions’ League group stage…
Atlético de Madrid, managed by Diego Simeone, meets Roma, managed by Eusebio Di Francesco, in Madrid, Spain, at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium,
on a match between the 3rd and 1st place of this group C, who are separated by 5 points going into this match. The teams go into this match practically in full strength.
The home side comes into this match in a very delicate situation, only having 3 points after 4 rounds on this Champions League group stage.
However, if they win here against Roma, they end up being in a more comfortable position, although still depending on other results, to advance in this competition.
The team hasn’t won yet, having slipped against Qarabag on the last 2 rounds of the competition.
As for Roma, they come into this match very close to advancing to the next stage of the Champions League, leading this group.
If they get the draw here, they will seal their spot in the round of 16. The team, that will still face the weakest team of this group, at home, on the decisive round, has their presence in the round of 16 practically ensured.
Only a scandal would see them fail to reach that objective.
Atlético de Madrid vs Roma – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On a match between two teams that have shown to be very consistent on the defensive point of view (Atlético de Madrid, still, far from their best times, on all aspects),
which leads me to believe we’ll have a close, tactical match but without many goals being scored, in my opinion.
