Onto Group G, and Roma take on CSKA Moscow at their Stadio Olimpico as the betting tips continue in this match day three of the Champions League.

Roma sit in third place but are just one point behind both CSKA Moscow and Real Madrid ahead of this vital clash on Tuesday night where Roma will be very keen to make home advantage count. The Italian outfit got off to the worst possible start in this group phase as they suffered a heavy 3-0 loss away at Real Madrid but they recovered sufficiently on match day two.

The hosts opened their account with a crushing 5-0 home win over Viktoria Plzen, and having won their last six home matches in the Champions League on the trot, scoring a total of 17 goals and conceding just 2 in reply, they’ll be eyeing off all three points here.

Forwards El Shaarawy and Dzeko (2 goals apiece) are the main dangers for the hosts.

CSKA Moscow share top spot with Real Madrid in Group G after earning a point on match day one away at Viktoria Plzen in a 2-2 draw and then returned to their VEB Arena to cause one of the shocks of this season’s Champions League with a 1-0 win over Real Madrid.

However, the real test will start on Tuesday night when they face a solid Roma outfit in their own backyard and although the Russian club registered wins away at AEK Athens, Young Boys, Benfica and Basel last season, they’ll have their work cut out to get a result of any kind in Rome I fancy.

It was four years ago that these two teams last met in Rome and the hosts ran out comfortable 5-1 winners which may remain in the backs of CSKA’s minds as they prepare for this trip.

My betting tips advise another home win here for Roma and to cover the line too.
