Bayer Leverkusen sits second in the Group E table with four points, earning a Champions League spot with a 3-0 win over Lazio in the playoff round. In the Champions League group stage, Leverkusen has beaten BATE and lost to Barcelona, with Javier Hernandez scoring three goals.
Roma has yet to win a match in the 2015-2016 Champions League, drawing against Barcelona while losing to BATE. Seven players have scored for Roma in the Champions League, who have been without captain Francesco Totti and Edin Dzeko.
The two sides played to a 4-4 draw in Germany on October 21, 2015, with Leverkusen scoring twice in the last 10 minutes to equalize.

Lackluster defense and strong finishing led to a 4-4 draw in Germany and the same should be expected in the Italian capital. Roma has the firepower to go against the seasoned striking of Javier Hernandez and Bayer Leverkusen, but they are lacking in the defensive end. Look for the goal scorers to be on target again with a strong potential of four or more goals scored between the two sides.
