UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 5th December 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Roma have an easiest assignment at hand on Tuesday night against an already eliminated Qarabag , but they need to make sure they end up nothing less than three points.
The Serie A giants lost to Atletico 2-0 in the previous round which opened up the race for second qualification spot in the group. Chelsea have already qualified, but Roma and Atletico have everything to play for. With a 2 point cushion against Atleti, all Roma need to do is to win against Qarabag. This also help them to clinch the top spot in the table, if Chelsea fail to take maximum points on matchday 6.
Meantime, a draw here and Atletico win against Chelsea will eliminate Roma from the Champions League.
The debutants Qarabag managed 2 points from their 5 matches so far and they do not have a chance to make it to the Europa League knockouts either. They were thrashed 4-0 by Chelsea last time, which was another indication of their inability to stand the ground against elite teams in the region.
