Chelsea could extend their lead at the top of their Champions League group with a win over the Italian giants, but will know that they face a hard test following the reverse fixture's ongoings.

For Eusebio Di Francesco's Roma side, the yellow-reds will be entering Tuesday night's matchup in relatively high spirits, Roma now sit second in Group C only two points behind their opponents tomorrow night. "Tomorrow will be another hard match", said Conte as Chelsea lead Group C, two points ahead of Roma, with Atletico Madrid in third.

Roma took a point away from Stamford Bridge earlier on in the month, in what was an enthralling 3-3 draw.

A win would keep the gap between Roma, who are two points behind Chelsea on five points, and Atletico at three, assuming that Diego Simeone's team - who are still unbeaten in La Liga but have disappointed in Europe - don't slip up again against Qarabag at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano. If the English champions lose, they will still have two matches left to revive their progress as the group leaders or as runners-up.

Roma is placed second in the group with five points- just two points behind leaders, Chelsea.

Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan claims that he did not consider leaving the Italian giants despite reportedly strong interest from Premier League champions Chelsea. Also, AS Roma victory over Chelsea will guarantee the Italian club at least a third spot finish in the group. However, Roma have a game in hand at Sampdoria, who after walloping a decent Chievo side 4-1 at the weekend now have the best goals-for column of any team outside the top three and have scored more (22) than the other two teams above them - Inter and Roma.

Chelsea have been drawn into one of the toughest groups in the Champions League group stage. Along with Manolas, Roma will also be missing defenders Rick Karsdorp and Nura Abdullahi who are also sidelined with injuries. AS Roma manager Eusebio Di Francesco is expected to field the same side that earned a precious point in London as the team tries to top the group.

With N'golo Kante nearing fitness, Craig Burley and Alexis Nunes discuss whether or not Antonio Conte should risk him against Roma on Tuesday.
