Finally the last game scheduled this week in UEFA Champions League quarter finals will take place at Camp Nou, with Barcelona and AS Roma fighting for a positive result. The first whistle will be heard at 19:45, UK Time.
As expected, the Catalans are big favourites at the bookmakers, with odds around 1.25 for a win at the moment. They are in a very good form, focusing 100% on Champions League since the La Liga situation is pretty clear. Besides the fact that Barca have one of the greatest attacks in the world, they also have a strong defense, especially at home, keeping 12 clean sheets in the previous 15 games here.
AS Roma lost 1-6 their previous trip here, in Champions League group-stage back in 2011-2012 season. Anyways, the Italians have shown a good form recently and they surely can impress here. Roma faced Shakhtar Donetsk in the previous round. They lost 1-2 in Ukraine, but won 1-0 at Olimpico, securing their qualification ticket for the quarter finals.
Barcelona vs AS Roma probable lineups:
Barcelona (4-4-2): Stegen - Roberto, Pique, Umtiti, Alba - Dembele, Paulinho, Rakitic, Iniesta - Suarez, Messi.
AS Roma (4-3-3): Alisson - Florenzi, Manolas, Fazio, Kolarov - Pellegrini, Rossi, Strootman - Under, Dzeko, Perotti.
