Roma vs Chelsea: Roma yearning for home win to pile misery on Blues

Roma play their third consecutive home match when they welcome Chelsea for a UCL Group C return leg fixture on Tuesday. Eusebio Di Francesco are currently placed to progress from the group after a 3-3 draw at Chelsea took them to second within the group.

They are however under no illusion regarding the task ahead, even with Atletico Madrid behind them with just two points. Edin Dzeko scored a brace in the first leg, and will once again be a key figure on this occasion, as will Aleksandr Kolarov, the other goalscorer in that match. They will also be keen to avoid a similar situation to the first leg when they had to fight fom a goal down and also gave away the lead from 3-2 up.

Chelsea top the group with seven points, and will look to stamp this with another away win. They have Morata fully fit after picking a knock in the first leg and Antonio Conte will most likely have him leading the attack. Eden Hazard, on the brace in the first leg, will be their key playmaker.
