Barcelona will be facing Italian giants, AS Roma, at the Camp Nou looking for another victory at home soil in the Champions League following a remarkable 3-0 win over Chelsea in last round. The Catalan heavyweights are close to regaining La Liga title, as they already have 12 point lead over second-place Atletico Madrid, but Ernesto Valverde is desperate to lift the Champions League trophy in his first season in charge. However, The Yellow and Reds will have their say in this two-leg battle after a tight victory over Shakhtar in Rome thanks to Edin Dzeko’s goal. The Blaugrana had a rough time in Sevilla last weekend, as they’ve barely managed to get a draw, thanks to Luis Suarez and Messi’s goals in the last moments of the game, while Roma failed to win against Bologna on the road. Two sides faced each other in the Champions League group-stage three years ago in a match Italian team would like to forget, as Barcelona smashed them by six goals to one, and Eusebio Di Francesco wants to make sure not to allow the same scenario happens again.
Lucas Digne and Sergio Busquets might skip the encounter due to injuries for the home team. As for Roma, Lorenzo Pellegrini, Radja Nainggolan, Cengiz Ünder, and Rick Karsdorp are all struggling with injuries and won’t be on the list of travelers.
