The Contenders: AS Roma's UEFA Champions League highlights so far

Comments()
In this series, we take a look at the highlights of the remaining 16 teams in the Champions League....

AS Roma had a wonderful run in the UEFA Champions League last season when they reached the semifinals, only to lose out to Liverpool.

The Italian side have once again done well to reach the knockout stages of the European competition after negotiating a group that had the likes of CSKA Moscow, Real Madrid and Viktoria Plzen.

Though they started with a 3-0 defeat away to Real Madrid, they bounced back with a 5-0 thrashing of Plzen followed by a 3-0 win over CSKA. Another 2-1 win over CSKA in the reverse fixture put them in the driving seat for qualification.

Subsequent defeats to Real Madrid and Plzen did not take them off the second spot in the group and they clinched qualification. 

Now, they will face FC Porto and will definitely fancy their chances of reaching the last eight. 

The likes of Edin Dzeko and Cengiz Under have all been i Under have all been mpressive for the team in their march to the Round of 16.

Watch all their best plays so far here.
