For those that expected a disastrous season after Neymar’s departure, that’s not quite what we have been seeing.
In La Liga, Barcelona built a huge advantage, which even allows them some slip-ups like the ones we’ve seen recently such as the draw against Sevilla on the weekend. The advantage to the 2nd place Atlético de Madrid is 9 points.
On the Champions League, their group stage’s campaign was flawless, and the team conquered the first place of a group with Juventus, Sporting and Olympiakos.
Barcelona vs Roma – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The challenge on this sort of matches is always finding a value line since most of the odds are very crushed due to Barça’s huge favouritism.

I believe that Barcelona will build a comfortable advantage already on this 1st leg.
