AS Roma vs Barcelona - Competition: UEFA Champions League

AS Roma go into the game off the back of a narrow win against Frosinone  last Saturday. Before the International break, the Giallorossi beat 3-0 the current Serie A champions Juventus who were runners up to Barca in the Champions League last season. They now sit second in the league with 7 points from the first three fixture.
Key midfielder Pjanic has failed to recover from a muscle problem while Radja Nainggolan who is battling to make a return to the side at the possible expense of Seydou Keita. Salih Ucan is doubtful with a bout of flu. Former Chelsea winger Salah, Gervinho and Iago Falque will probably be deployed behind lone striker Dzeko.
Barcelona enter this game high on confidence having notched a vital winner against Atletico last time out. Anyway, the Blaugrana have so far won the Super Cup but lost the Spanish Super Cup, while all three wins at the start of the La Liga campaign were very narrow.
Gerard Pique, who has been absent with suspension in the league, should start in defence at the expense of Thomas Vermaelen, who picked up an injury early on against Atletico. Goalkeeper Claudio Bravo and Dani Alves will miss the match due to injury and Sergi Roberto is likely to continue to deputise out of position at right-back. Neymar, Luis Suarez and Leo Messi will lead the attack once again.
These two measured forces in a pre-season Joan Gamper Trophy exhibition match at Camp Nou last month, which Barcelona easily won by 3-0. Roma have failed to win their last 5 matches in the Champions League last year after beating CSKA 5-1 while Barcelona have won 10 of their last 11 matches in this competition. 

Probable lineups:
AS Roma: Szczesny – Florenzi, Manolas, Rudiger, Digne – Keita, De Rossi, Nainggolan – Salah, Dzeko, Falque.
FC Barcelona: ter Stegen – Roberto, Pique, Mascherano, Jordi Alba – Rakitic, Busquets, Iniesta – Messi, Suarez, Neymar.
