Roma vs Real Madrid factfile

0

Form: Roma have rediscovered their form since the return of Luciano Spalletti for a second spell as coach, stringing together four straight wins in Serie A including Friday’s 3-1 victory at Carpi. Their recent European record makes for sorry reading, though, with just one victory in their last 11 attempts. Real Madrid have also changed their coach since last their last Champions League outing, with Zinedine Zidane overseeing five wins and a draw in his first six matches since replacing Rafa Benitez in the Spanish capital. The goals continue to flow for Real, with Cristiano Ronaldo on target twice in Saturday’s 4-2 win at home to Athletic Bilbao keeping them just about within sight of Liga leaders Barcelona.
