Chelsea and Roma meet at Stamford Bridge in a game for this phase of the UEFA Champions League (Group Stage). There is no recent record of direct clashes between these two teams, who have not played any match in the last 3 years. The last time they faced was on 04-11-2008, in a match that ended with the final score: Roma (3-1) Chelsea. Particular attention is needed for the home / off condition, as both teams present significantly different results at home and away.
After 2 victories, the home team reaches this 3rd day in the 1st position of Group C, with 6 points won. On the previous day, he won by (1-2) away against Atletico Madrid, after in the first game of this group stage have won by (6-0) at home against Qarabağ. This is a team that curiously tends to win more positive results as a visitor than at home, since in the last 30 games has recorded 11 victories, 1 draw and 3 defeats as a visitor, with 29 goals scored and 13 conceded; against 9 wins, 1 draw and 5 defeats in his stadium, with 41 goals scored and 21 suffered. The team arrives to this match after a defeat outside with the Crystal Palace by (2-1). In the last 10 home games for all competitions, Chelsea won 5, tied 1 and lost 4. Their attack has scored regularly as they scored goals in 8 of the last 10 games. In their home games there is a tendency to have goals, as 23 of their last 27 games have ended with over 1.5 goals and 21 in 27 have finished with over 2.5 goals. In 15 matches, he only managed 1 comeback in all 6 matches in which he suffered the first goal.
Chelsea come to this unmotivated European day after a 2-1 loss to the Crystal Palace. The home team usually act 3-4-2-1, favoring fast transitions, mainly through the flanks, with the three most advanced men being Willian, Hazard and Batshuayi. In any case, the home club also manages to practice a soccer of possession of ball, progressing in the field through short passes. One of the great qualities of the home team is the effective way to defend the ball game. Guess the homemaker can not count on Morata and Kanté, injured.

In any case, one can guess that Rome adopts a more defensive strategy, with the aim of not being too unbalanced. For this European day, coach Eusebio Di Francesco will not be able to count on Defrel, Schick, El Shaarawy, Strootman, Emerson and Manolas, injured.
