Match Preview

AS Roma are still searching for a first Champions League (CL) away point since October 2017. Their next stop on this conquest takes them to a city from which they have emerged unscathed in their four visits to date (W3, D1).
CSKA’s indifferent form ahead of this fixture will give Roma cause for encouragement. In all competitions, the Russian hosts have just one win in six matches (W1, D1, L4), going on a downward spiral since their famous win over Real Madrid (1-0) last month.
That said, CSKA have won their last two CL home matches. Their home form this season has also seen them get six wins from a possible ten (W6, D1, L3) in all competitions, although the last two games in that sequence have been losses.
Roma have lost just once in their last five matches (W2, D2, L1) in all competitions and are unbeaten in three away games (W1, D2). However, they have just one win in their last ten CL away trips, returning a record of: W1, D2, L7 (GF 11, GA 29) therein.
In fact, Roma are now without a clean sheet in 29 CL away matches, last getting one in March 2007. Additionally, Roma have just two clean sheets from their seven competitive away games this season.
Players to watch: Nikola Vlašić has scored two of CSKA’s last three CL goals, while Edin Džeko (ROM) has five goals and an assist in his last two CL games.
Stat attack: There have been over 2.5 goals in eight of Roma’s last ten matches.
Both teams have scored in just three of CSKA’s last ten CL home matches.
In contradiction, however, seven of Roma’s last ten CL away matches have seen both teams score.
