Within two evenings of Tuesday and Wednesday (on the 10-11 th of April) in Manchester, Rome, Munich and Madrid there will be held return quarterfinal matches of the UEFA Champions League. The first matches, that is on Tuesday, will be held the matches with the participation of the Manchester and Roman clubs.
And in England during the meeting of teams of Josep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp there is still the possibility of small intrigue, then in Rome at Stadio Olimpico the return game of the Roman club against Catalans has already became the friendly match.
And here a question is not even that in the first home match at Camp Nou Catalans have scored 4 goals (4:1) to Romans. If the place of Roma were taken by the stronger club of the level of Real, Bayern or Liverpool, the coaching staff of Ernesto Valverde wouldn't feel so confidently.
However today's Roma is a middle level European team and therefore the fans of Barcelona shouldn't worry at all ...
It is obvious that the most loyal fans of Giallorossi still hope for successful events which will be favorable for the hosts of Stadio Olimpico. However today's realities are that the final outcome of the first match has completely predetermined the further scenario of the second leg.
And though the football which is aimed at keeping the advantage reached earlier contradicts game philosophy of Catalan superclub but with Ernesto Valverde the team has repeatedly dried the game in separate matches.
According to initial bookmaker quotations, Barcelona is called the favorite of the forthcoming Roman duel. But, telling the truth, the five-time champion of Europe doesn't need to fight in this match for a victory at all. Moreover, at Stadio Olimpico Catalans will even be glad with defeat with a goal difference in two scored goals. Therefore it is wiser to forget about the quotations of the main outcomes and to bet on the minimum number of scored goals.
Roma – 4.50, draw – 4.50, Barcelona – 1.60;
