Camp Nou, Barcelona, Spain. Barcelona is planning to achieve the Champions League semi-finals out of the blue since winning the opposition in as they confront Roma more than two quarter-last legs.
Chelsea was dispatched easily at Camp Nou last time out as Lionel Messi scored his th objective in the opposition, while Roma pushed out Shakhtar Donetsk.
The last time these two groups met Barca ran out victors, with an Italian group not winning at Camp Nou since Juventus at this stage 15 years prior.
Cengiz Under knee and Lorenzo Pellegrini calf are minor questions for Roma, however of more concern is Radja Nainggolan hamstring , who limped off against Bologna at the end of the week.
Lionel Messi seems to be over his slight wellness worries in the wake of scoring against Sevilla, as are Nelson Semedo hamstring , Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Gerard Pique both knee.
Barcelona have Roma at Camp Nou with commence booked for 7. This will be an intriguing early test for the player.
After signing the likes of Ivan Rakitic, Seydou Keita, Dani Alves and Aleix Vidal and Lenglet, too , Barcelona fast-tracked their usual method of paying over the odds for a Monchi gem and going straight to the source.
Malcom was all set to join Roma before Barcelona offered him more at the very last moment. Roma fans were waiting at the airport for his arrival only to be disappointing in one of the most memorable transfer sagas of the summer.
The sporting director spoke at length about the situation:. The right winger, signed from Bordeaux, may make his first start for Barcelona, but he could so easily could have been playing in Roma's colours in this encounter.
Will he show them what they're missing? The Brazilian shot-stopper was exceptional for Roma last season and one of their most important players as they finished third in Serie A and reached the Champions League semi-finals.
The year-old Brazilian has a bright future and is well regarded from his time at Palmeiras. If neither of them feature, it could see a debut for Robin Olsen.
Between the three arrivals, the goalkeeping position could be up for grabs and this pre-season tournament could help Di Francesco decide his first choice.
Since the start of last season, Lionel Messi has scored 17 goals in 17 Champions League appearances for Barcelona. Messi has scored 12 Champions League goals against Italian clubs in 19 appearances including two goals in two games vs Roma.
I've been watching Roma with interest this season and they were my dark horses, but it is Barcelona who are the team I'd love to see win it.
Roma will double up on Lionel Messi but he'll be just fine with that, dragging them all over the pitch and opening the game up for his team-mates.
Barca do struggle a bit with Philippe Coutinho being cup-tied as Paco Alcacer isn't sufficient back up and Ousmane Dembele is still adapting to playing alongside players of the ilk of Messi and Luis Suarez.
I think they'll go with Dembele, who has the pace to exploit those gaps left by Roma focusing on Messi, and it should be a comfortable night at the Nou Camp if he can step up.
