Our football match prediction:
Stadio Olimpico will host Tuesday’s football game between Roma and Chelsea. The two teams played out a thrilling 3-3 draw in the reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge and yet another high-scoring affair is on the cards. The Giallorossi proved their worth in the 3-3 draw with the Premier League champions, with the team coming from two goals behind to grab something from the match. Edin Dzeko proved his worth in the Stamford Bridge showdown and all eyes will be on the Bosnia international when the two teams face each other in the “Eternal City”. The Blues, on the other hand, aim to retain top position in the Group C and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the Stadio Olimpico showdown. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment and we predict that they are going to share the spoils in Tuesday’s Champions League game.
Highlighted Player (Daniele De Rossi):
Daniele De Rossi is one of the most impressive products of Roma’s youth academy. De Rossi played as a striker at the start of his career, but he has since developed into one of world’s leading holding midfielders. The Italian footballer plays as a centre back as well and he has been a part of Roma since 2001. De Rossi was born on 24 July, 1983 in the capital of Italy and he has 16 caps for Italy U21 team. The Roma midfielder won the 2006 FIFA World Cup with Italy as they defeated France in the title game. De Rossi is well known for his tackling, vision, brilliant passing and awareness and he is capable of reading the game. The Italian footballer made 24 appearances for Roma in the 2015/2016 Serie A campaign and he represented Italy at the 2016 European Championship finals. However, the Azzurri failed to record a good result at the tournament in France as they were beaten by Germany in the quarter-finals.
Highlighted Team (Chelsea):
Over the years Chelsea have established themselves as one of the dominant forces in the English Premier League. Roberto Di Matteo helped the team win their first ever Champions League trophy (2011/2012), but it has to be noted that they were more than fortunate to beat Bayern Munich in the title game. Chelsea have been playing at Stamford Bridge since 1876 and they are a real force to be reckoned with at home. The Blues have won seven FA Cups, five League Cups, two UEFA Cup Winners’ Cups and the UEFA Europa League. Rafael Benitez was in charge of the team that faced Benfica in the 2012/2013 Europa League final, with Branislav Ivanovic scoring the winner for the Blues in the title clash. After lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, the Blues largely struggled in the next campaign, which saw Jose Mourinho’s second spell with the club come to an end, and Antoine Conte went over to take the reigns for the 2016/2017 season.
