My post was pretty spot on I think, but offer rebuttals if you have any. I've said this before, but i'll be shocked if i'm not the only one on here watching every Roma game, and talking to Roma fans after every game. But if you do too, i'd love to discuss their season, manager, board, new signings, etc. Fun club to dissect. 
The reason for their demise is lack of Rüdiger this season

Hopefully Kante's hamstring isn't at risk for aggregation and he's as close to 100% as he can be so he's not risking a long term injury by playing tomorrow. We need to be extra cautious and careful with him just like we did with Hazard.

This is going to be very tough and hopefully we stand up to the test. That game at home v Roma was some of the worst defending I have seen from us, if we can tighten up I think we can sneak this.

Tibo

Azpi Luiz Cahill

Zappacosta                           Alonso

Kante Bakayoko

Pedro                         Hazard

Morata

 

That's what I think Conte will go with. Me personally would start Rudiger instead of Cahill.

Have to hope and believe that Conte and the boys will treat this like the Atleti or Tottenham games earlier this season. Basically like a cup final. We can't go out an be passive or reactive. We have to take the game to them.

If we do what we did in the first meeting with them and just allow them to dominate possession and feed off counter attacking scraps we'll lose this time. We couldn't get any sort of rhythm, couldn't string simple passes together, and gave the ball away over and over again.

We need to show some balls here and must win. Also can't afford morale and confidence to be low for the weekend when United visit.

Last season, Roma would average 3 goals per game. This season, they struggle to score 1 per game. (3 times they've scored more than once in the league this season). That's the compromise for having statistically the 'best defence in the league', and it's certainly a bad compromise. 

Atletico Madrid are suffering from the same syndrome. Beating them wasn't the feat it would've been in seasons prior. I hope we get them again at a later stage.

Fox Sports are showing Celtic v Bayern here which will probably be 6-0 and United v Benfica which will probably be an easy United victory instead of our game. 

*sigh*

Shitty online stream it is for me. <_<

Well that's a disappointing XI...

Expect us to be dominated in midfield once again. :D

Even without Kante, this team should have more than enough to beat Roma. If we just go out here and surrender possession and play like scared pussies we'll lose this.

That midfield struggled against worst teams than Roma. Why not play Drinkwater aswell. How I'm just being pessimistic.

Hope for the best, expect the worst with that midfield and Cahill.

This is why Conte never did well in Europe. His too stubborn. You keep your first  clean sheet in 6 games and all of a sudden you decide to change that??.

Cesc and Baka against Radja Strootman and DDR, Hmmm this can get ugly.

I promise you every single one of those 3 is borderline awful this season. Their best midfielders aren't on the field; Pellegrini & Gonalons. That would have been interesting. This is more predictable - surely we win.

That said, there's nobody who can't outplay our current midfield.:drunk:
