AS Roma vs Atletico Madrid – UEFA Champions League – Preview

Posted on by Sreya

AS Roma vs Atletico Madrid

AS Roma vs Atletico Madrid – AS Roma hosts Atletico Madrid at the Stadio Olimpico on Matchday 1 of the UEFA Champions League in a Group C fixture.

AS Roma will be heading into this game comparatively fresher than their opponents, for their weekend Serie A game against Sampdoria was postponed. Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, had to contend with a difficult draw away at Sevilla.

The Group C of the UEFA Champions League is poised intriguingly with Chelsea and Qarabag playing in the other game. While the Azerbaijan-based club isn’t likely to compete for knockout qualification, the other three clubs have equally strong chances of progressing to the knock-outs.

Team News

Patrick Schick and Nura Abdullahi are injured while Rick Karsdorp has been listed as a doubt for AS Roma. Atletico Madrid do not have any injury or suspension concerns.

AS Roma Possible Starting Lineup: Alisson, Juan Jesus, Kostas Manolas, Federico Fazio, Aleksandar Kolarov, Radja Nainggolan, Daniele de Rossi, Kevin Strootman, Stephen El Shaarawy, Edin Dzeko, Diego Perotti.

Atletico Madrid Possible Starting Lineup: Jan Oblak, Juanfran, Stefan Savic, Diego Godin, Felipe Luis, Koke, Thomas Partey, Saul Niguez, Yannick Carrasco, Kevin Gameiro, Antoine Griezmann.

“First and foremost I’d like to see a determined side that shows the desire to get the result. It’s going to be a footballing battle and I hope we do well. We need to get off to a good start. Given that it’s our first game, it could be a decisive match in terms of our qualification hopes.”

– Eusebio di Francesco, AS Roma.
