TIPS: Home Win | Odds: 1.38 | Result: 3:0 WON!!!


Roma have had a mixed start to their Champions League (CL) season so far (W1, L1) and suffered a shock loss at home to Spal (2-0) in their last Serie A match at the weekend. Of course, they had one eye on this fixture, as they look to build on a superlative CL home record of six wins since the start of last season, conceding only to Liverpool during the run.
The hosts have won four of their last five (W4, L1) in all competitions, keeping three clean sheets, but have failed to win six of their last ten (W4, D2, L4). There have been 35 match goals during this run, with Roma scoring 20.
CSKA shocked Real Madrid 1-0 at home in their last CL match, but have since recorded two losses in three (W1, L2) in all competitions, including a penalty loss in the domestic Cup competition.
They have lost only once in their last five CL matches (W3, D1, L1) and have an identical record in their last five CL trips – both qualifying and group stage. Interestingly, CSKA are unbeaten in their last ten away games in all competitions (W3, D7), with their last loss coming at Arsenal in the Europa League in April.
Players to watchEdin Džeko (ROM) has 11 CL goals since the start of last season and only Cristiano Ronaldo has more (15), while Nikola Vlašić has two goals and an assist in the three CSKA’s CL goals so far.
Stat attack: Roma have kept seven clean sheets in their last ten CL home matches, while CSKA have not kept consecutive CL clean sheets in the group stage since November 2011.
Roma are unbeaten in two previous CL H2H matches (W1, D1), while losing just one of their four European H2H encounters (W2, D1, L1).
Roma have scored 17 goals and conceded just twice in their last six home matches.
