Roma x Real Madrid
- Roma are looking to reach the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals for the first time since 2008, although they are unlikely to do so here. They progressed from the groups with only one win to their name and only Malmo conceded more goals than the Giallorossi (16) in the group stage. Roma were also turned over 6-1 by Real Madrid's rivals Barcelona. However, they have since changed their manager and results and performances have started to pick up.
- Madrid have also changed their manager since the group stages finished and while the mood around the capital has improved, they have struggled on the road in recent times. In fact, their fortunate 2-1 win away to league minnows Granada last week was their first win on the road in four. While Madrid should have no problem in overcoming Roma over the two legs, their trip to the Eternal City may not prove as straightforward as first imagined.
