The contenders

AS Roma

AS Roma’s Champions League confidence cannot be shaken considering the fact that they just subjected CSKA Moscow to a heavy pitch thrashing and caused an upset against the proud Manchester City. Going against the Bavarian can be a little daunting. But since they will be playing in their own territory, the roars and support of its followers could readily inspire the Serie A dark horse to dominate the match.

 

In terms of their domestic league performance, there is very little to worry about the loss to the defending champion, Juventus as the club  is currently more concerned in imposing its dominance in the international scene.

 

Bayern Munchen

It only took two (2) consecutive victories for the Bavarians to return to Bundesliga’s top spot. This major comeback lessens the pressure felt by the German powerhouse in terms of performing well in the domestic and international leagues. Now, they can achieve more focus.

 

Bayern, however, will have to deal with the absence of Thiago Alcantara who suffered yet another bout of injury.

 

Possible head turner

Bayern’s Arjen Robben and Francisco Totti will definitely pull of a great show, thus, it would be such shame to miss these two (2) great players engage in a head to head battle.

 

Prediction

AS Roma 1-2 Bayern Munchen
