AS Roma vs Bayern Munich UEFA Champions League 21-10-2014

0 التعليقات

AS Roma team are unbeaten in eleven of their last twelve matches. Their only loss during this streak came by the hand of Juventus, who are currently unbeaten in, and top of the Serie A table. Despite their sparkling form, AS Roma still sit behind the frontrunners in both the Serie A and in Group E of the Champions League. Tuesday’s clash with Bayern Munich is a very important for Roma, as it could be a deciding factor in who goes on to win the group. Francesco Totti was predicted to be on the bench for Roma’s league match versus Chievo Verona over the weekend, but he started, showed excellent form, and contributed a goal to the 3-0 final score. Roma may appear to be the underdogs against Bayern Munich, but they have been in such good form lately, that it is very likely that they will steal the three points at home this Tuesday and take the lead at the top of Group E.

Bayern Munchen have been in sparkling form lately, winning four of their last five matches and remain unbeaten in their last ten. In the 2010/2011 Champions League competition, Bayern Munich and AS Roma each won their home matches against each other. Bayern went on to claim the top spot in the group while Roma brought up second, advancing them both to the Round of 16. In their last match, Bayern rolled over Werder Bremen by an unforgiving score of 6-0. Tuesday’s match very well could be the deciding factor in who goes on to win Group E this year. Bayern has become a powerful force to be reckoned with, but they will have a very difficult time at the Stadio Olimpico this Tuesday. Roma will play defensively and take advantage of their goal-scoring opportunities; Bayern must respond with a solid back line and they must finish their early chances to hold off the Italians.
