Champions League: Real Madrid vs AS Roma

Real Madrid vs AS Roma Betting Tip and Predictions. In the second leg of the 1/8 finals in the UEFA Champions League, Real Madrid host AS Roma at Santiago Bernabeu. Read below betting preview, useful info and predictions for the match between Real Madrid vs AS Roma.


Real Madrid have made very good result in first leg when they beat AS Roma 0-2 at Olimpico and they are practically with one leg in the next round. They are playing very good this season, especially upfront their supporters, and if they fail to qualify in the 1/4 finals it would be big surprise. In the last match in La Liga, Real Madrid smashed Celta 7-1 and announced that they will go in this match very serious, despite the advantage of two goals. Against Celta, Cristiano Ronaldo exploded and scored 4 goals and become the top scorer in Primera Division. Their coach Zinédine Zidane said: “It’s not true that Roma have no chance.” He has announced that they have to go in this match seriously in order to confirm the 1/4 finals. Good news for home side is that Gareth Bale get back in the squad and they will be even more dangerous.

AS Roma lost in the first leg 0-2 and it will be hard for them to beat Real Madrid away with two goals difference, but they have nothing to lose and they will try to make a surprise. The loss in the first leg was their last defeat. After that AS Roma won three matches in a row in Serie A in which they scored 12 goals. Roma have already played against Real Madrid in the 1/8 finals in the season 2007/2008 and beat them in both legs with the identical results 2-1. Now, it will be hard for them to repeat that success, but they will play very relaxing and try to make the miracle.
