36.3% of the 11 goals have come from efforts outside the area (four in total).

With three goals so far, Edin Dzeko is the top goalscorer in Group C, two of those coming against Chelsea a fortnight ago.

Both teams have conceded four goals from their first three matches in this competition - an average of 1.33 goals against per game.

When talking about possession, Roma have an average of 54% while Chelsea only have the ball 49% of the time.

87% of Roma’s passes have been successful in this season's Champions League, while Chelsea in comparison are on 85%.

A fortnight ago these two sides faced off at Stamford Bridge and played out a thrilling encounter which resulted in six goals, the pick of the bunch being Edin Dzeko’s sumptuous volley.
