Roma will be going all-out for crucial victory

Roma celebrate a goal

Champions League
BT Sport 2, 5pm Wednesday

Roma were happy to grind out a 0-0 draw in their Champions League Group C opener at home to Atletico Madrid but will be going all out for the victory against fourth seeds Qarabag

The group stage of this competition is a new venture for Qarabag and their inexperience was brutally exposed by Chelsea, who hammered them 6-0 at Stamford Bridge earlier this month.

Qarabag are shaping up as sectional whipping-boys although they will hope to fare better on home soil.

They won 1-0 at home to Copenhagen in the playoff round but all of their group-stage rivals are of a much higher calibre than the Danish champions.

Roma's minimum requirement is to get the three points and they should accomplish it with ease.

Recommendations
Roma -1 on Asian handicap
