AS Roma made positive result of 1-1 against FC Porto in the first leg of the qualifications for UEFA Champions League and they hope that can make the last step and reach the group phase. They had a lead of 0-1, but at the end of the first half-time Vermaelen was sent-off and it was hard for them to win, but they have positive result and victory will lead them in the Champions League. Even goalless draw would be good result for Roma, so I believe that they will play defensively and try to score from the counter attack. Meanwhile, in Italy started Serie A and Roma started very good and smashed Udinese 4-0 upfront their supporters. The atmosphere in the club is great and everyone expect another good performance and positive result.

FC Porto failed to win in the first leg, but they have managed to score in the second half-time and keep chances to reach the Champions League. Visitors have to score at least one at Olimpico if they want to go through. They created many chances, but didn’t have lucky and the match was finished without winner. In the Portuguese Liga, Porto have managed to beat Rio Ave 1-0 after they hit the net few minutes before the end of the game. Their coach Nuno Espírito Santo has rested few important player on the match in order to be fresh for the more important game against AS Roma. Porto have very good team and they are playing in the CL for years, so it would be big loss if they fail to reach the group phase. One thing is clear – FC Porto have to attack from the first minute and score in order to go through.
