Roma

In Brief

3-0 away win over bottom-placed Chievo Verona. Karsdorp, Schick, Perotti and Under out. Manolas recovered. Olsen in the squad.

Looking Back

Took an early 2-goal lead over Chievo and had to stand their reaction. After the break they scored again and closed the match dominating.

Dzeko and El Shaarawy tore Chievo defence apart, scoring, assisting and creating. Mirante made some decisive saves. Marcano also offered a positive performance, surprisingly enough.

Looking Ahead

Stretched domestic league positive run to 6 games. Will next be hosting Porto in the Champions League.

Karsdorp, Schick, Under and Perotti should still be out. Manolas fully recovered. Olsen is fit enough to make the squad despite a calf issue.

Pellegrini will be back from a domestic ban.

Jesus could be considered instead of Manolas at centre-back and Nzonzi instead of Cristante in the midfield. Kluivert represents the alternative to Zaniolo as a winger.

Mirante could still be preferred to just-recovered Olsen between the posts.

Points of Interest

Roma hosted Porto twice and they never managed to score any goals, drawing once and losing once. In fact, they have never beaten the Portuguese side.

In Brief

Worst moment in league. Marega and Aboubakar still out. Corona suspended. Loum, Manafá and Mbemba ineligible.

Looking Back

Porto had a compromising draw, last Friday. Dragões lost four points in their last two league games, making the lead to second place drop to a narrow one point only.

FC Porto finished first their group stage with distintion, having collected 16 out of the 18 points possible, in a group with Schalke 04, Galatasaray and Lokomotiv Moscow.

Looking Ahead

The pair of strikers Marega and Aboubakar are out on injury and will miss this first leg match at Rome.

In fact, Aboubakar's injury is long enough for the club not to have registred him to this next stage, together with new signings Wilson Manafá, Loum and the barely used defender Mbemba, also ineligible.

The important winger Jesus Corona will be serving a suspension, after UEFA considered his third yellow card on the 5th round of group stage to have been calculated.

Despite the 4-3-3 used last Friday was not very successful, and the team played better only after changing to the more usual 4-4-2, it is expected that Conceição will bring the trio in midfield to this first leg match.

Points of Interest

Porto never lost to Roma in the four times the two clubs met. The last time Dragões visited the Italian capital, they have earned an impressive 3-0 win.
