Bayern Munich and AS Roma clash for control of Group E

Alexander Hassenstein

Bayern Munich and Roma square off in what is easily the most anticipated match of the Group E. With both teams still unbeaten in the group it will be a fight for group dominance. For a Bayern Munich side that has already secured 6 points, it's about increasing their lead and ensuring they come out with the most advantageous seeding in the knockout rounds.

On the opposite side, Roma are looking for prove that their 5-1 win over Moscow and 1-1 draw with Manchester City were not flukes. A win over a side like Bayern Munich that has been one of Europe's best for the last half decade will go a long way towards cementing that.

Either way, a win here put's the victor in the driving seat for Group E qualification. A draw makes us all feel pedantic and silly and tells us we get to look forward to watching it be pedantic and silly again in two weeks time. Let's see some of the former.
