Roma could rock toiling Atletico

Champions League Group C
Live on BT Sport Extra 2, 7.45pm Wednesday

Atletico Madrid have advanced at least as far the Champions League quarter-finals in each of the last four seasons but are without a victory after four Group C matches and look poor-value odds-on favourites to beat Roma in the Spanish capital.

Like so many other clubs, Atletico are struggling to adapt to life at a new stadium.

They are without a victory in five matches at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium and reached a low point on matchday four when held to a 1-1 draw by Azerbaijan champions Qarabag.

Only a victory over Roma will keep their qualification hopes alive but Diego Simeone's side are unlikely to be at their best having put a big effort into the weekend 0-0 draw at home to Real Madrid.

Roma were hugely impressive when defeating Chelsea 3-0 on matchday four and can reach the last 16 with a game to spare.

Roma or draw double chance
