The giallorossi on the road at the Camp Nou to face Barcelona. Di Francesco and his men dream big!
Their Champions League performances are there to confirm that the Lupi are not hopless victims. They qualified from group C ahead of Chelsea, Atlético Madrid, and Qarabag. They defeated Conte‘s crew at the Stadio Olimpico after having played a terrific match at Stamford Bridge where Dzeko scored a screamer. The giallorossi knocked out Shakhtar in the last 16. In this edition of the UCL, Roma totalled 4 wins, 2 draws, and 2 defeats with 11 goals in favor, and 8 against. Dzeko is Roma’s top goalscorer with 4 goals, ahead of El Shaarawy and Perotti (2), Kolarov, Manolas, and Ünder (1).
Eusebio Di Francesco is confident in a good performance of his guys because the team always impressed in the 2017-18 Champions League campaign. In their 4 home games in the competition, the Italians have not conceded a single goal. They drew 0-0 against Atlético Madrid, won 3-0 versus Chelsea and 1-0 against Qarabag and Shakhtar in the last 16.
Although the Roma coach EDF is appearing in the Champions League for the first time, he has taken the club of the Italian capital to the last eight of Europe’s premier club competition.
These are indisputable facts to keep hoping for a Champions League dream!
