Barcelona vs Roma: Can Roma survive the Camp Nou abattoir?

04.04.2018, Finished at Camp Nou

00:08, 29 Mar 2018

Barcelona welcome Roma to the Camp Nou for the first leg of the Champions League quarter finals on Wednesday. The Catalans have been slaughtering visitors to the ground in this season’s competition and are again favourites in this match.

The last visitor here was Chelsea, who shipped three goals to bow out with a 4-1 aggregate. Juventus also shipped a similar number in the group stages. Lionel Messi will be looking to return to great club form after suffering humiliation in an Argentina friendly against Spain. Ousmane Dembele is now fully fit and will partner Messi and Suarez in attack.

Roma already visited Spain in the group stages against Atletico but will know this is a totally different tie. The 3rd placed Serie A side edged Shaktar Donetsk on away goals in the last round and will be hoping they can get another away goal to lean on here. Edin Dzeko will be their main man in this quest.
