AS Roma vs. Real Madrid - Football Match Report

Real Madrid beat Roma 3-0 on September 19 in the teams' most recent meeting, but a lot has changed since then.

Real Madrid will look to maintain its lead of Group G in the UEFA Champions League when it faces Roma on Tuesday in the Italian capital.

Madrid bounced back in style from their humiliating LaLiga defeat at Eibar on Saturday, with Gareth Bale and Lucas Vazquez scoring in a 2-0 victory at Stadio Olimpico, although things could have been different if not for Cengiz Under's awful miss.

Federico Fazio's mistake then gifted Bale the opener and Roma faded thereafter, allowing Madrid to erase memories of their shock defeat to Eibar last weekend by finishing top of Group G.

What's worse is that in spite of players being linked to the club and wanting to come to Spain, the Whites made absolutely no effort to sign anyone but ended up bringing in Thibaut Courtois who has been a pure waste of money.

Santiago Solari's side doubled the advantage just before the hour. "Games are 90 minutes long and you have to grow into them sometimes".

Real Madrid suffered their first defeat under new coach Santiago Solari on Saturday, putting in an abject performance during a deserved 3-0 loss to Eibar.

Justin Kluivert, who replaced the injured Stephan El Shaarawy in the 22nd minute, had Roma's first shot in the 26th minute, but the youngster's attempt was always missing the target.

Madrid seized it, showing once again their immunity in the Champions League, where the team's problems in domestic competitions are seemingly never transferred. We missed our chances and they didn't. Although Ramos' team are still only six points off the top of La Liga despite their poor start to the campaign, it seems that Madrid's priority will again be the Champions League this season. Bale curled a cross to the back post and Karim Benzema's knock-down put the ball on a plate for Vazquez to tap in.
