Stick with Simeone's side to overcome Roma

Atletico Madrid's top goalscorer Antoine Griezmann
1 of 1

Group C
BT Sport ESPN, 7.45pm Tuesday

This should be a cracking watch between two teams with different styles and it may pay to stick with pragmatic Atletico Madrid for their trip to Roma.

Atletico, twice finalists and at least quarter-finalists in each of the last four years, remain a tough team to beat with draws at Girona and Valencia this term as well as a 5-1 victory at Las Palmas.

Diego Simeone’s side are well-organised at the back and hard-working in midfield, giving superb protection to one of the world’s best goalkeepers in Jan Oblak, while Antoine Griezmann is always liable to nick something on the break.

Roma opened up with a 1-0 win at Atalanta but the goal came with their only shot on target before Eusebio Di Francesco’s new-look outfit suffered a 3-1 loss to Inter.

The Wolves need games to gel so Saturday’s postponed clash at Sampdoria may well go down as a negative.

Atletico Madrid draw no bet
