Barcelona v Roma Betting Tips & Predictions | Champions League Match Previews.
4th April 2018 – 19:45, Camp Nou, Barcelona.
Match Preview & Team News
Barcelona host Roma for their Champions League clash after a thriller 2-2 draw at Sevilla hoping to take the best from it, after netting two very late goals and snatching a point at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. This has ended their five-game winning streak across competitions but we don’t believe we’ll see a side distraught on the day and Ernesto Valverde’s men should pose a very serious challenge for recently shaky Italians.
Blaugrana are yet to suffer a loss at Camp Nou this season and we’ve seen them connect a five-game winning streak since late February, as they beat Girona, Atletico Madrid, Espanyol, Chelsea, and Athletic Bilbao. They’ve kept clean sheets in the last four of those occasions too and this also promises a very tough day for Edin Dzeko and company in the visitors’ attacking line.
Roma also come into the match after a draw, as they were held off by Bologna on Saturday – which emphasized their troubles on the road once again. Giallorossi have earned just four wins in their last 12 trips and we’ve seen those woes largely affect their Serie A ambitions as well as the job in Champions League so far.
Interestingly, the sides have met in Champions League Group stage twice so far but this will be their first knock-out stages clash. Roma have bagged a 3-0 home win back in 2002, which came together with a 1-1 home draw but this wasn’t enough to proceed from the tough group. Barca have taken revenge with a 6-1 win in their last head to head matchup, surely hoping to build on such a performance on the day.
