Barcelona’s amazing welcome video for CL opponents Roma

La Liga giants Barcelona have this evening released a brilliant promo video for their Champions League quarter-final first-leg clash with AS Roma on Wednesday night.

Matchup

The Giallorossi are set to travel to Catalunya as major underdogs in their tie with La Liga leaders Barca, with Eusebio Di Francesco’s men having dispatched of Ukrainian outfit Shakhtar Donetsk in nail-biting fashion in the competition’s last-16.

The capital outfit’s positive recent streak of results came to an end at the weekend, though, with Roma only able to come away from Bologna’s Renato Dall’Ara with a point.

Barca, meanwhile , put Premier League champions Chelsea to the sword by 4 goals to 1 over the two legs of their own Champions League last-16 tie, with the Blaugrana having staged a last-gasp recovery to snatch a draw away to Sevilla on Saturday night (courtesy of super-sub Lionel Messi).
