Match Preview : Chelsea VS AS Roma, Top Blues’ Star Missing For Champions League Clash

Chelsea will play against Roma in the Champions League on Wednesday in the match of Group Stage. Chelsea will be keen to finish the Group as Group toppers by winning this match against Roma. Roma are also unbeaten in Champions League this season. So this contest is expected to be a very exciting one.

Chelsea had beaten Atletico Madrid at Wanda Metropolino with a 2-1 margin and they were victorious against Qarabag FK in the first match of Champions League match with a 6-1 scoreline. They are currently placed at the first position in their Group with 6 points in the 2 matches. They would like to win the third one to seal the top spot of their Group. But Chelsea’s domestic form are not being very good. They had lost back to back two matches in the Premier League against Manchester City and Crystal Palace respectively. Their mental confidence level will be down and they would try to get to the things turned back in their way from this match.

On the other hand, Roma had drawn with Atletico Madrid with a 0-0 Scoreline in their first  match of Group Stage and had beaten Qarabag FK with a margin of 2-1 in the next match. Roma are placed at second position with 4 points in their 2 encounters so far. They are situated in 5th position of the League Table in Serie A. They had also lost against Napoli with a goal from Insigne. But they are quite capable of beating Chelsea on their day and they will be keen to take at least 1 point from this encounter.
