CSKA Moscow had a surprise win against Real Madrid in the tournament. Surprising as it may seem, a win or draw against this Madrid team deep in crisis cannot be considered a huge achievement. Roma has had their share of problems, but this is a challenge they will be up to.

Stadio Olimpico will witness the fighting spirit of the Roman players that was on full display against FC Barcelona last season.

Roma won 6 of the 8 overall meetings with Russian clubs, drew and lost 1 each.

AS Roma vs CSKA Moscow Prediction

The team from the Italian capital should comfortably see out this match in style. For all their strengths and positives, the Russian side is no match for AS Roma. The home team possess more firepower as well as more experience in Europe.

Expect the hosts to dominate the match the whole of ninety minutes. The tricky forwards of the Roman side will be hard to negotiate for the inexperienced Moscow players. AS Roma will outscore their opponents by at least two goals.
