It's almost game time!

Real Madrid visit Il Olimpico and they will try to prove they are ready to fight for the 2016 Champions League title. Los Blancos have struggled recently away from the Bernabéu and AS Roma will definitely try to take advantage of that with their intensity and physicality in the midfield.

Isco and Marcelo are expected to make their return to the Starting XI, providing their trademark creativity, something which could help Real against Roma's gameplan. Either way, Real Madrid should be trying to score some away goals in order to make the return leg at the Santiago Bernabéu more easy.

Los Blancos will need to be very careful with Roma's wingers, so Carvajal and Marcelo must stay focused at all times if they don't want to be caught out of position by El Shaarawy and Salah. Either way, Real Madrid have more than enough tools to get the win tonight and show European football what they're capable of.

Location: Il Olimpico, Rome, Italy

Kick-off time: 08:45 PM CET, 02:45 PM Eastern.
