Champions League: AS Roma vs BATE

AS Roma vs BATE Betting Tip and Predictions.

In the last round in Group E of the UEFA Champions League, AS Roma host BATE at Olimpico.

AS Roma stand at the second position in Group E and they are in the good position to reach the next phase of the UEFA Champions League. With the win against Belarus team, AS Roma will qualify for the knockout stage, but they even could go through if they took one point, while Bayer Leverkusen fail to beat FC Barcelona. The big problem for home side could be their defence. Roma have the worst defence in group, conceded 16 goals in 5 matches, but they attack is pretty good (scored 11 goals). Italian team have managed to win only one match in this competition this season and interesting fact is that with only win they can go through, but they will definitely looking for three points and avoid any calculations.

BATE have one point less than AS Roma and Bayer Leverkusen. In order to qualify in the next phase of the UEFA Champions League for the first time they have to beat Roma and Bayer have to lose or play draw against Barcelona. BATE have only one win in this competition and it was a win against AS Roma 3-2, so they hope that can repeat their success and beat Italians again. Visitors have nothing to lose and they will do their best in order to win this game and make the greatest success in this competition. The main problem for visitors could be their away performance – they lost both away matches and scored only one goal.

AS Roma vs BATE injuries and suspensions
