AS Roma take on the visitors Atletico Madrid at “Stadio Olimpico” in the first gameweek of the UEFA Champions League Group stage. The match will be played in Rome on Tuesday, September 12th.
In this season AS Roma participated only in two clashes, having beaten Atalanta 1:0 and lost to Inter 1:3. Last time the Romans conducted an official encounter was on the 26th of August. Last weekend “I Lupi” did not play as their head-to-head against Sampdoria has been postponed because of a storm in Genoa. This summer AS Roma signed a lot of players, but the club didn’t spend much on purchases, having bought eight performers for 64 million EUR. Besides, “I Lupi” were not left by a single team’s leader with the exception of “The Emperor” Francesco Totti who had quitted the football.

Atletico Madrid show inconsistent results in the opening rounds of this season’s LaLiga, having gained five out of nine possible points. In their recent encounter “Los Colchoneros” got 0:0 draw vs. Valencia, having recorded the first clean-sheet in the current season. Diego Simeone has not left Madrid meaning that the Argentine foresees a great future of the club and is hoping to win with it namely the UEFA Champions League as in recent years Atletico Madrid have taken all possible trophies in Spain.
The Italians and the Spaniards have never met before. The rivals are nearly the same top level which means that is going to be a spectacular fight. I presume that it will be an engrossing battle with a number of scored goals as both AS Roma and Atletico possess by impressive attacking capability.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.0 scored goals.
