Roma were 4-1 down from the quarter final first leg battle against Barcelona in the Champions League at Camp Nou.
As Roma face Barca on Wednesday morning (GMT+8), the hosts is expected to welcome back midfielder Radja Nainggolan and forward Cengiz Under, who were both injured in the previous campaign. But on the other hand, winger Diego Perotti is still sidelined with a calf problem.
Super star Lionel Messi warmed up for Barcelona’s trip to Italy by scoring a hat-trick against Roma in the UCL quarter final first leg.
However, Philippe Coutinho is ineligible to play for Barca. Along with Coutinho, Sergi Samper, Lucas Digne, and Sergio Busquets are also expected to miss out.
In addition to this, Barca may be in trouble considering that they have not won any of their past six Champions League away games against Italian sides (drawn two, lost two).
There is still a chance for Roma to make a comeback in this campaign. Although it’s a very slim chance, what matters here is how they would maximize this in order to frighten and eventually dominate Barcelona (Watch how this contest unfolds.
