Tuesday, at 20:00, AS Roma will receive a visit to FC Porto in a match for the tour of the finals of the UEFA Champions League final. The match will take place on “Stadio Olimpico” in Rome.
We can only wait for a balanced match Tuesday night on “Olimpico” in one of the most balanced double hives in this phase of the finals of the UCL final. One so balanced that bookmakers give equal chances of qualifying both combatants. True, Rome looks good on the offensive, but we can not forget the recent 3-3 bumps with Atalanta after “giallorossii” led 3-0, but also the incredible 1-7 against Fiorentina.
Rome’s defensive has still real problems, and although we can not compare matches in the Champions League or cup with the Champions League, one thing is certain: Porto is not at all an easy opponent, not even in the “inferno” of the Olympics. Only once did the Portuguese know the taste of defeat on foreign ground in an official match in the last ten months: a 0-1 in the championship, on the field of rival Benfica rival. Otherwise, Porto appears to be a very well-organized, solid team that will come up with the themes of confrontation against Di Francesco’s students.
Given the circumstances of this game, we expect a balanced deployment of hostilities. In a match where we think that, at least in the first half, the two bands will tattoo each other, we think we will be in balance on the scoreboard, not being able to underestimate an excellent team-organized visitor tactical.
