Roma hosts CSKA Moscow
Roma hosts CSKA Moscow in a match from Group G of the Champions League. Stay with us, because we are going to take a look at this match at the Stadio Olimpico in our predictions football 1×2.
Roma started their Champions League campaign with a defeat, losing its visit to Real Madrid at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. Last season Roma reached the 1/2-finals of the competition, so now the Wolves are motivated once again to do well in the tournament. Roma quickly fixed their mistake from the first round, enjoying a terrific 5-0 win over Viktoria Pilzen. Edin Dzeko was the big hero of the night, scoring a hattrick for Eusebio Di Francesco’s team.
For the Italian club it would be a major failure if they don’t progress to the 1/8-finals of the competition. That’s why Roma will look for a second win in this group, because right now the points are very important for their chances.
CSKA Moscow are the surprising leader in this group after the first two rounds. The Russian side started its campaign with a draw against Viktoria in Pilzen, but in the second round CSKA celebrated a surprising home win against the European champion Real Madrid. Nikola Vlasic scored for CSKA after just two minutes of playing and it was enough for the Russian team to win.
The win over Real Madrid gave CSKA some serious chances in this group, but they are also aware that they still have 4 matches to play until the end of this phase. And now their primary goal is to win something from the visit to Roma.
These are our predictions football 1×2 for the Champions League game between Roma and CSKA Moscow at the Stadio Olimpico. We feel that this is going to be an interesting match.
