Roma looking to be a tough challenge for Bayern

Bayern Munich will be the visitors to the Stadio Olimpico in the midweek Champions League action. Roma will be looking to provide a formidable opposition to the German club. The Italian outfit have made a great start to the season, although they have recently dropped points in the league. After recently managing a 1-1 draw with Manchester City away from home, Roma will be looking to take advantage of the home support in order to get three points. This would put them in a great position to qualify from the group stages.
Getting a victory against the German club will not be easy, as Pep Guardiola’s team have been imperious at the start of the season. They appear to have overcome the niggling issues that worried last season. The arrival of Robert Lewandowski on a free transfer appears to have made them a complete team. Recognising these threats, Roma manager Rudi Garcia says that it will be very difficult to get a victory even though they will be playing in front of their own supporters. It has also showered the praise on his opposition Guardiola by saying that the former Barcelona boss is one of the best in the world.
Roma have had just one win in the last three matches and they certainly can feel apprehensive about Bayern Munich’s visit. "Guardiola is one of the best: he made a very tough choice joining a club that had won everything the previous year. He has shown that Barcelona's success wasn't just down to the players, but the coach had his hand in it too. We know we're outsiders. We've played two good matches but now we have to keep performing in the Champions League. We need to make the most of the spells in the game when we're on top tomorrow: I expect the Olimpico to be packed,” said Garcia.
