Barcelona vs. AS Roma Tuesday Soccer Betting
Barcelona produced a stellar performance over the weekend when they thrashed their bitter rivals Real Madrid on the road, securing a 4-0 win. Following that win, they now proudly stand with an eight-game unbeaten record that has come with five consecutive clean sheets in their last five games. In essence, that’s the reason they are considered as big favorites this Tuesday. With 10 points from four games in the Champions League, they can proceed to the next stage if the simply earn a draw against Roma, or if Bayer Leverkusen fail to beat BATE in the other Group E fixture.
Meanwhile, Roma come into this game after they missed the opportunity to go top of Serie A table, thanks to a controversial draw against Bologna on Saturday. In UEFA, they sit second with just five points, a point above Bayer Leverkusen. They must therefore win against Barcelona if they want to keep their chances of moving to the next stage alive.
