In a sentence: After a somewhat cruel loss in the Nou Camp, Roma will be looking to exit the Champions League with some pride in front of their own fans.

Last time: Barcelona sealed a 4-1 victory over the Romans with the help of a few lucky bounces along the way when the teams met in the first leg last week.

This time: Roma to win is at 4/1, a draw is at 3/1 and an away win is at 8/13.

You might remember: The last time Roma defeated Barcelona was at home, back in 2002 in a 3-0 win.

Betting Tips & Predictions

Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta have both been in superb form this season, and they’re likely to be instrumental in Barcelona finishing off the job against Roma

It’s games like this which make Champions League preview scores very difficult, because while one team is so far in front on aggregate, it’s still impossible to count out any team at this stage – as Barcelona showed us against Paris Saint-Germain last season.

If Roma are going to pull off a great comeback, all they need to do is win 3-0, which is priced at 66/1. Looking at more football score predictions, Barcelona to repeat their 4-1 scoreline from last week is at 20/1 and Roma to match that is at 80/1. 

Both teams to score predictions could be a good bet for this game, with both sides possessing talented attackers who can penetrate most defences. With BTTS at 1/2, it shows how likely it is. Many times over the years, football predictions have always found a way to shock us even when we expect it, and with Roma at 10/1 to win and grab four or more goals it could prove tempting. 

Many Champions League predictions this season have been spot on with their calls, and with this one it’s easy to back Barcelona, especially with the lead they’re bringing in from the first leg. 5-0 is at 66/1, 4-0 is at a lowly 22/1, and 3-0 is at an even lower 12/1. But if it isn’t football score predictions you’re after, you can always go for total goals instead. The highest price there is actually for no goals at all, at 16/1.

Match Summary

1

Look out for:

Roma will be looking to at least win this fixture to give their fans something to cheer about, so a 2-1 home win at 14/1 could be worth something.

We fancy:

Despite Roma being a top side, you still can’t ignore the talent in this Barcelona team and a 3-1 at 11/1 could be one of the best football betting predictions for this game.

It's a long shot, but:

Roma to complete a 4-0 comeback may not be likely, but at 125/1 it may be worth something for those who enjoy taking a risk.
