The Group C match between top-2 table toppers AS Roma and Chelsea played at the Stadio Olimpico, Rome will kick off at 01:15 AM IST on Wednesday, November 1.

Antonio Conte's Premier League champions looked in fine fettle having just beaten rivals Tottenham at Wembley while Atleti have been one of Europe's preeminent sides in the past few seasons, reaching two finals and one semi only to be thwarted each time by local rivals Real. Victor Moses is the only definite absentee for Chelsea. 'In any hard moments, it is always good for the team when we fight and work together.

Central defender Kostas Manolas, who had come on as a late substitute, nearly became the next Roma name on the score sheet with a bullet header, but Courtois pulled off a spectacular reaction save to deny the Greek global. "He is a fantastic manager and tries to do the best for Chelsea".

Despite this very bad performance and result Chelsea still find themselves in a relatively comfortable position in the group, especially since Atletico Madrid failed to beat Qarabag in the Spanish capital. Roma take on Los Colchoneros in Madrid next but even if they were to beat Chelsea and then lose to the Spaniards in three weeks' time they would still be level on points and have Qarabag at home on the final day.

"The idea is also to be more realistic than during the last three league matches where we lacked something". "To stay at the top of this group is really important", said the Italian.
