Italian giants AS Roma take on Chelsea at the iconic Stadio Olimpico on Tuesday night in Matchday 4 of the UEFA Champions League. Chelsea will seal the qualification for the knockout stage of the Champions League if they beat Roma in Rome. They last met on 18th on October at Stamford Bridge with the match ending in a thrilling 3-3 draw.
Let’s jump straight into team news.
AS Roma Team News
Defender Kostas Manolas is a major doubt due to a thigh strain. Roma will also be without Patrik Shick and Rick Karsdorp with Bruno Peres and Gregoire Defrel a major doubt.
Probable XI: Alisson, Florenzi, Fazio, Jesus, Kolarov, Nainggolan, Gonalons, Strootman, Perotti, Dzeko, El Shaarawy.
Chelsea Team News
Victor Moses will continue to miss out due to a hamstring injury. Danny Drinkwater will most likely start against Roma. Midfield engine N’Golo Kanté is 50-50 for a start but should feature in the match in some capacity. Eden Hazard has created most number of goalscoring chances than anyone in this season’s Champions League and will be the key to unlocking the Roma defence.
Probable XI: Courtois, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Rudiger, Cahill, Drinkwater, Fabregas, Bakayoko, Alonso, Hazard, Morata.
