Roma vs Chelsea Preview – Italians Looking to Topple the English for the Top Spot

Champions League Media

Roma come into a decisive clash against Chelsea in the Champions League as they look to make progression into the knockout stages of the competition. The 3-3 draw against Antonio Conte’s team at Stamford Bridge was a great result but it still keeps Chelsea two points ahead in the table. Roma are second with Atletico Madrid breathing down their neck in the third place. Atletico have been unable to get any wins in the group so far, but the possibility of Diego Simeone’s team winning the last three group matches cannot be ruled out. You can follow Roma vs Chelsea on the live centre and watch the highlights after the game.

As a result, Roma are still concerned about the position in the Champions League. After having secured a 3-3 draw at Stamford Bridge, the Italians will be confident about a strong result in front of the own supporters at the Stadio Olimpico. Roma have been in excellent form since the draw with Chelsea, as they have been able to get three wins on the bonds. More importantly, they have been able to keep three consecutive clean sheets. Yet, Chelsea have been quite strong on the road this season. The blues have been able to get several victories – including a 2-1 success against Atletico at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Chelsea may already be thinking about focusing on the cup competitions, as the club have fallen several points behind the two Manchester clubs in the race for the Premier League title. The Champions League is a realistic option for the blues if they concede defeat in the domestic title at an earlier stage. Conte will be aware that he does not have the squad strength to be able to fight on all four fronts. For live streaming, there are a few clean sites available.

Conte’s team are undoubtedly helped by Roma having a huge contest in the form of the local derby against Lazio just a few days after this game. While it may not cause Eusebio Di Francesco to rest a couple of players for the Champions League match, it suddenly shifts some of the attention towards the game against Lazio. Meanwhile, Chelsea also have a mammoth tie during the weekend with Manchester United the visitors to Stamford Bridge. Chelsea have been boosted by the return of Alvaro Morata from injury, while N’Golo Kante is also likely to return to the starting line-up.

This could be a game with a fewer number of goals, as Roma have been concentrating more on clean sheets rather than goals at the end of the pitch.
