Another exciting duel will take place Tuesday evening at Olimpico. More exactly, AS Roma will host Atletico Madrid from 19:45, UK Time, in the UCL opening round.
AS Roma failed to impress us in the first part of this season. They won only one point out of six in Serie A and their third match has been postponed. The Italians took full of advantage from international break and they played a friendly game against Chapecoense, winning 4-1. The home side want at least a draw against a stronger team at first view and the clash is going to be really interesting.
Atletico Madrid have a strong squad and they want three points here, since every point is crucial in a group like this one, with three sides fighting for top 2. The Spaniards are undefeated in the first three La Liga matches, but they failed to impress as well. Atletico won only one game, 5-1 away against Las Palmas, ticking two more draws with Girona in the first round (2-2) and Valencia few days ago (0-0).
