Bayern Munich vs. AS Roma Champions League: Live, News, Updates, Gamethread

After a 7-1 thrashing of AS Roma the last time around, Bayern Munich are hoping for a result good enough to clinch a birth in the Champions League Round of 16.

After a 7-1 thrashing two weeks ago, AS Roma come into this match with a chip on their shoulder and the presence of mind to prove they are the next big team on the European stage. However, Bayern Munich are looking to book their berth in the Round of 16.

A win sees Bayern Munich win their group outright (12 points to the next highest possibility of 11), while a draw is only good enough to secure advancement, not ensure a group win. Here's hoping for the former and the chance to rotate and use their depth against Moscow in Matchday 5.
