UEFA Champions League Gamethread: AS Roma v BATE Borisov

Here it is, Roma's Champions League fate is on the line. While it's true the Giallorossi can advance without defeating BATE Borisov, leaving your fate in someone else's hands is seldom a good idea, especially not when your job may be on the line.

Rudi Garcia may possibly receive a reprieve in the form of Mohamed Salah, who was named to the squad yesterday. If this refrain sounds familiar, it should; we made a nearly identical claim over the weekend with Gervinho. In The Predator's case, the return lasted all of 25 minutes before he limped off the pitch. Salah is and has been equally important to Garcia's attack this year, so let's hope the end result is just a bit different.

Roma Squad: Rudiger, Digne, Nainggolan, Castan, Iturbe, Dzeko, Salah, Maicon, Falque, Pjanic, De Rossi, Keita, Vainqueur, Florenzi, Szczesny, De Sanctis, Gervinho, Manolas, Ucan

Starting XI as soon as we can. Forza Roma!
