Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid have been focusing on this match for a very long time, knowing that it will be very difficult to conquer the Liga BBVA title with Barcelona having a solid lead in the table already. The Champions League appears to be the most feasible trophy for Real but they will have to take care of business against a dangerous AS Roma side.

AS Roma projected XI: Szczesny, Florenzi, Manolas, Rudiger, Digne, De Rossi, Nainggolan, Pjanic, Salah, El Shaarawy, Dzeko.

Real Madrid projected XI: Navas, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Kroos, Modric, Isco, James, Ronaldo, Benzema.

It will be very important for Real Madrid to score away goals in order to have an easier task when Roma visit the Bernabéu for the return leg. Los Blancos definitely have the potential to do that and take care of Roma even in Italy, but they will also need to be very careful with the Italians.
