AS Roma host Barcelona at Stadio Olimpico for the return leg of the quarter-final of the Champions League, today at 19:45 GMT.
Roma is coming in the match following the 4-1 defeat in the first leg with Barca. They lost during the last weekend at home to Fiorentina as well, making it three games without a win in all competitions and putting them 4th in the Serie A table. They play 3rd placed Lazio on Sunday as well, so both sides have very big domestic fixtures coming up this weekend.
Barcelona pretty much ended this tie last week, as they took advantage of two own goals before Gerard Pique and Luis Suarez added goals of their own in a 4-1 victory at the Camp Nou. They are unbeaten in the competition this season and have only failed to score in two games during the group stages.
