When Roma were pitted against Chelsea and Atletico Madrid in the group stage of the Champions League, you would have struggled to find a Romanisti happy with the draw or confident of getting to the round of 16. Victor Moses is the only definite absentee for Chelsea. The Frenchman's presence would make it a lot less easy for Roma to dominate the centre of the park as they did last time out.

"We need to be ready in their stadium because it will be very, very hard".

"Kante has trained with us". It's very important in this moment to speak with the player, and his sensation is very important. "For sure tomorrow we try to make the best decision".

The rematch in Rome's Stadio Olympico after a 3-3 thriller in London two weeks ago did not disappoint the 55,000 crowd in Rome as Chelsea coach Antonio Conte was frustrated on his return to Italy.

A win would keep the gap between Roma, who are two points behind Chelsea on five points, and Atletico at three, assuming that Diego Simeone's team - who are still unbeaten in La Liga but have disappointed in Europe - don't slip up again against Qarabag at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.

Roma have a number of injury problems, including forwards Patrik Schick (thigh) and Gregoire Defrel (ankle), and defenders Bruno Peres (hamstring) and Rick Karsdorp (cruciate ligament).

Since Golmaal Again has done so well on the big screen, one can expect a lump sum for the satellite rights as well. The film bagged Rs. 15.25 crore on Friday, taking the film's business to Rs. 102.85 crore in India.

"In London, we saw a lovely Roma and tomorrow I want to see the same mentality", said boss Eusebio di Francesco.

We were slight underdogs going into the match against Atletico as we are for this upcoming game.

"The idea is also to be more realistic than during the last three league matches where we lacked something".

"Chelsea's chance of progress is now 90% and they will be certain of their place in the knockout phase with a win in Rome this week".

Roma led when El Shaarawy crashed the ball home from 20 yards with the outside of his right foot and El Shaarawy's tidy finish, after a mistake by Antonio Rudiger, made it 2-0 after 36 minutes.
