AS Roma vs Chelsea
UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 31st October 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).

Points key for both Roma and Chelsea when they meet for the matchday 4 fixture of the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League.

The 3-3 draw between the teams at Stamford Bridge combined with Atletico’s draw at Qarabag keep all four teams in contention for knockout qualification.

Chelsea are top of the group with 7 points having beaten Qarabag 6-0 on matchday 1 and Atletico Madrid 2-1 on the next round.

Meanwhile, the second placed Roma have 5 points in their bag. The lone win came at Qarabag, while they drew with strong sides Chelsea and Atleti.

Atletico Madrid and Qarabag are yet to win a match and have 2 and 1 points respectively.

Roma are on an excellent run of form and are coming on the back of three 1-0 wins in the Serie A. They lost just two of their 13 matches in all competitions this season, both happened against top two sides in Serie A Napoli and Inter. The Partenopei raked up 9 wins alongside 2 draws.

Chelsea are also coming with three wins on the bounce after the 3-3 draw against Roma on matchday 3. The only difference is that they have been far from convincing in those wins. The defense has been all over the places which will be the major worry for Conte in the trip to Stadio San Paolo.
