Roma vs Barcelona 11/04/18
Barcelona have demolished Roma at the Camp Nou by four goals to one, but it’s fair to be said the Italian giants had their chances in that match. However, they’ve failed to take advantage of Barcelona’s slow start and even scored two own goals, which is ultimately going to cost them the Champions League elimination. Winning all three titles is still very much possible for the Blaugrana, as they are edging closer to regaining La Liga title following a 3-1 win over Leganes at home last weekend, and they are going to face Sevilla in the Copa del Rey final, but Ernesto Valverde’s primary objective is wrapping up the Champions League title in his first season in Catalonia. The Yellow and Reds lost 2-0 to Fiorentina at the Stadio Olimpico last weekend, which very much compromised their chances of securing the Champions League promotion giving Lazio and Inter an opportunity to overtake them in the table, and Eusebio Di Francesco will need to come up with something special to outplay the Catalan giants and take his team to the semi-finals.
Rick Karsdorp, Cengiz Ünder, and Diego Perotti are all sidelined with injuries in the home squad, while Lucas Digne and Sergio Busquets won’t be playing for the visitors.
