The Chelsea vs. Roma match will be played on Wednesday, October 18, at the Stamford Bridge, London. This is the second round match of UEFA Champions League group C. Chelsea is currently first on the table with six points, while Roma is second with four points at the moment.

STATS

  • Chelsea is currently in a bad series, with two defeats in a row. These two losses came after they had an eight games undefeated streak.
  • Roma was defeated after seven consecutive games last weekend. However, they are still in the series of four victories in away matches.

HEAD TO HEAD

These teams played four matches against each other up to date. Chelsea recorded two victories, Roma had one win, while one game ended in a draw. Their last encounter happened in 2008 when Roma eliminated Chelsea from Champions League by 3:2 on aggregate.

CHELSEA NEWS

Chelsea suffered two consecutive defeats in Premier League. If the failure against Manchester City wasn't that surprising, the loss against Crystal Palace on the road was a shock. Before that match, Crystal Palace lost all games in the league, and they even failed to score a single goal, but they managed to get two against reigning English champion. Their next game will be against in-form Watford at Stamford Bridge, and Chelsea must win these two matches to get back on track.
