AS Roma Facing Manchester United in the Quarter Final of Champions League 2007-08

Manchester United will face AS Roma in the quarter final of the Champions League this season. This is going to be the rematch of last year’s Champions league at the same stage of the competition. Both the clubs also met each other in the group stage of this year’s Champions League with Manchester United winning at Old Trafford, while the other match ended up with a draw at the Stadio Olimpico. So, it seems that the previous records talks in favor of English giants who saw off French Champions Olympique Lyonnais in the first knock out round of the competition. Roma also defeated Spanish Champion Real Madrid to secure their quarter final place.

Ken Ramsden, the secretary of Manchester United, said that Manchester was happy with the draw as they could be able to avoid facing any English club. Manchester United has to travel to Stadio Olimpico in the first leg match on either 1 April or 2 April. Indicating Manchester United’s impressive record against Roma, Ramsden said they did not any reason to fear Roma.

Goal.com reported:

“It’s a good draw,” said Ramsden.

“As a fan I’m glad we’re not playing an English team, it loses that flavour.

“We are away first which will please the manager. We have a good record against them so there’s no reason why we should be afraid that’s for sure.”

Regarding last year’s chaos made by the fans which affected the match badly in Rome. Ramsden expressed his hopes that there would be any such problem this year. He requested fans to follow the directions given to them in Rome.

Now, Manchester United has been in imperious form so far this season in Champions League. However, Roma would also be inspired after their two back to back successes against Real Madrid. Now, it is almost certain that an exciting match is waiting for the football fans. I hope to see two mouth watering clashes between AS Roma and Manchester United.
