Real Madrid have just taken a surprise defeat when they travel to Eibar’s headquarters in the Spanish La Liga, but they must immediately forget the defeat, because there is an equally important match on this weekend that the Santiago Solari team must win. This is the advanced match of the European Champions League group phase which has entered the 5th Matchdays, where Real Madrid will face AS Roma. The match itself will take place on Wednesday morning, 28 November 2018 at Stadio Olympico, Rome.
AS Roma, who will host the match later, look less convincing if they look at their last five games in all competitions. Eusebio’s landing squad in Francesco only packed 2 wins and swept one defeat among them. However, playing at home may make AS Roma still have a chance to win in the match later. Moreover, they have not fully qualified for the last 16 of this annual tournament.
