When the Champions League quarterfinal draw was made, Barcelona would have felt very fortunate to have drawn AS Roma as they look to win the La Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League treble.
Their last game offered them a major scare as they had to fight very hard to earn a late 2-2 draw against Sevilla having been 2-0 down until the 88th minute. They are now unbeaten in 17 matches in all competitions and they have won 11 of those games. Their defence has also been impressive this season, with the likes of Samuel Umtiti helping them to 11 clean sheets in their last 13 games.
Roma have fallen out of the race for the Scudetto title, but they are still 3rd and look good to qualify for the Champions League again next season. Their weekend draw against Bologna ended their run of 4 successive victories and extends their unbeaten run to five games. They don’t have the best away records in competitions as they have won only 4 of their last 12 away games in all competitions.
AS Roma have won one, lost two and drawn two of their last five meetings with Barca.
