Roma vs. Real Madrid, UEFA Champions League draw 2015: Los Blancos will visit Italy

Decent luck for Real Madrid.

Real Madrid will play against AS Roma in the next round of the Champions League.

This is Rudi García's third season with Roma and he's found mixed results. While they have the quality to be a dangerous team, they are streaky and their defense isn't very solid. Real Madrid should have more than enough tools to beat the Italian side over two legs, but the visit to Roma could be complicated.

Miralem Pjanic is Roma's most dangerous player and Real will need to be careful with the Bosnian midfielder this leg.

This is a very important competition for Real considering that they are already out of the Copa del Rey and 5 points behind both Barcelona and Atlético in the Liga BBVA table. It's never easy to win the Champions League, but one could think that the European competition is the team's most realistic chance at winning a title this season.
