The RM vs ROM match preview –
The defending champions of the UEFA Champions League Real Madrid will be playing their first game of the new season as they host AS Roma.
Real Madrid lost their star striker in Cristiano Ronaldo this summer and there was a lot of talk about how difficult it going to be for this team to emulate a similar level of success. Interestingly, they don’t look like they’ve lost a step, and the team is still functioning exceptionally well. Coach Julen Lopetgui has done a good job with these players, and now they are looking to win a 14th UEFA Champions League title.
However, AS Roma are going through a tough time in the Italian Serie A. Every single game has seen at least one change or a tweak in the formation. The defence, as well as the attack, has been a problem for AS Roma. This might the worst possible matchup the team could’ve gotten, but can also be a blessing in disguise for them to get back on track.
