Kick Off Time: 19:45 GMT
Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Roma (Italy)

24 matches are played at the Serie A and Roma is on the second position in the league, once again behind Juventus Turin. The gap is already nine points big. With another loss, the Serie A title would be gone and Juventus could start to plan the party for their 4th Serie A win in a row. Rome will try to stop this early planing not only to keep their chances for the title alive, but to keep away their followers in the table. SSC Napoli is only 3 points behind them and is seeking for Romes UCL position. Roma did not lose in their last 14 league games but won only once in the last 7 games at the Serie A. Last defeat in the league happened in Napoli (0:2) the other loss this season happened against their next opponent in Turin (2:3). They will seek for revenge but it won’t be an easy game. At home they did not lose once in this season at the Serie A. Rome won 7 times and drew 5 times and scored 23:7 goals. At the Euro League they advanced into the round of the final 16 with a 1:1 draw and a 2:1 win against Rotterdam.

Juventus team was able to get an important win at the UCL match against BVB on Tuesday. At the Juventus stadium they beat the Germans with 2:1. Sad for them, Pirlo had to be substituted due to an injury and will miss the next weeks, and probably also the second leg against Borussia.

With another win they could increase the gap between them and the league runners up, to 12 points.
