The match will take place at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium. So, Real Madrid has home advantage tonight as they will take on Roma in front of their home supporters. For Roma, the equation is much easier as they have 2-1 first leg lead now. Roma needs only a draw to make it to the quarter final of Champions League.

Goal.com reported:

Taking a 2-1 lead into the second leg proved to be a huge relief for Roma, as they found themselves behind after just eight minutes of play at the Olimpico.
To come back from that deficit against the most successful club in European history was a great indicator of the strength and character that Spalletti’s men possess. This time around, though, they travel to the Bernabéu knowing that defeat is not an option. Roma will be guaranteed qualification to the next phase of the competition if they avoid losing in the Spanish capital this week.

Roma’s on road performance in Champions League so far this season is neither impressive nor poor. With a win, a defeat and a draw in their three group stage away fixtures proves their mixed away performance. Real Madrid’s current form is poor as they have lost four out of their last three matches in all competitions including their first leg defeat away to AS Roma.

Roma, in contrast, has much more consistency than Real Madrid as they projected four victories along with two defeats and a draw in their last seven matches in all competitions. Both teams have some injury. However, Real Madrid seems to be worst sufferers as they are missing their Dutch striker Ruud van Nistelrooy who is out with an ankle injury. There are some more injury and suspension news out there which will definitely make Bernd Schuster worried ahead of the match against Roam.

Asianhandicap reported:

Bernd Schuster will be hoping that his charges can make full use of home advantage and turn the match in their favour even though they will be missing striker Ruud van Nistelrooy in this match. Nistelrooy is out with an ankle injury, while there are other players missing from the lineup as well. They include the likes of Sergio Juande Ramos who is suspended, as well as Christoph Metzelder (foot), Wesley Sneijder (rib) Javier Saviola (ankle) and Arjen Robben (ankle) who are all out injured.

However, the good news for Real Madrid fans is that Pepe, GUti and Robinho have been back for the match. They missed the first leg match. Roma is also missing some players who are out with injury. Marco Cassetti is suffered from shoulder injury. Roma fans can be happy as Juan is back in the squad overcoming from a foot injury. Philippe Mexes and Simone Perrotta are also in the final team contention in the match against Real Madrid.

Roma manager Spalletti said that his side wanted to go though Real Madrid though they have enough respect for Real Madrid. He insisted on maintaining the characteristics which had helped Roma to reach this level. However, he did not forget to revel that Madrid is a difficult opponent to face with.

Goal.com reported:

“Real deserve respect but we want to go through,” said Spalletti. “We have a big will to go there and battle with one of the greatest teams in the world.
“Respect should be a fundamental element of any team and especially Roma who play in important competitions both domestically and internationally.
“We need to maintain the characteristics which have taken us to this level.”
