In a 1st round match of this Champions’ League Group C, Roma hosts the Spanish side Atlético de Madrid.
The group also has Chelsea and Qarabag, so a win in this match can already create a strong contender for one of those fights.
Roma arrives here with some days to rest, since their match got postponed by the Italian Serie A due to a storm in Rome, so that’s why they gained a few days of rest when compared to their opponents.
As for Atlético de Madrid, the team comes into this match after a good performance from their opponents’ Valencia, with the match finishing a 0-0 draw.
They didn’t have their main key player which is Griezmann, that should start and give some hope to the Madrid’s club.
Roma vs Atlético de Madrid – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I believe that we have a strong roster here, with 3 clubs able to qualify for the Round of 16. However, there are only 2 spots and they will be heavily contested.
I treat this game with a lot of importance, especially for Roma, who will have to take the initiative because they’re playing at home. This way a slip-up could be crucial, since theoretically they are facing a direct contender.
Despite this being Atlético de Madrid with their strong defence and the Uruguayan duo, Roma has a strong attack and they rarely fail to score at their own stadium.
I see a match with, at least, 2 goals, for the importance and for the will to win from both sides, especially the hosts.
