CL: Roma’s possible opponents

Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are among Roma’s possible Champions League opponents in Monday’s draw.

The Giallorossi topped a group including Chelsea and Atletico Madrid, so will face one of the second-placed sides in the Last 16.

They cannot face fellow Serie A side Juventus, nor group stage opponents Chelsea, so there are six possible opponents for Eusebio Di Francesco’s side.

While Basel, Porto and Sevilla would, on paper, represent winnable ties there are some potential pitfalls for the capital club.

Shakhtar Donetsk, who finished ahead of Napoli, are a potential opponent but there are two European heavyweights in the pot too.

Champions League holders Real Madrid, who eliminated the Lupi in 2016, are a possibility, as are German champions Bayern Munich.

Roma face Bayern in the Group Stage of the 2014-15 campaign, losing 7-1 at the Stadio Olimpico and 2-0 in Germany.
