    Did anyone watch them against Villarreal today? If there was ever a team that's going to challenge United for the Europa League this season.

    Bad news for Roma is that its rumoured Florenzi is out for another 6-7 months after rupturing his ACL yet again.

    Very sad and that could even be a career ending injury. :(

    Dzeko back to his Wolfsburg best. Shame he wasted so many years at City.

    It was a pretty even game but Roma's attack was ruthless and Villareal were toothless. They're certainly one of the favorites for the tournament.

    Dzeko on top form is a great striker, always thought he was good, just unlucky he had Aguero in his way. Definitely wouldn't want them in the next round.

    We'll struggle against them. Very very good side.

    It's pretty clear he was nowhere near his best at City though.

    Agreed, but so are we, we really shouldn't fear anyone in this tournament. We'll have to beat a lot of good teams if we want to win the thing so may as well think we can beat them, that's always a good start. In a two-legged tie though yeah it'll be a very close game. They're really well organised defensively, look great in attack and their midfield is very solid actually. In fact they don't have a lot of weaknesses really.

    Naingolan's been pretty involved in every Roma game I've watched this season. Seems to have a good drive

    United doesn't have to fear anyone IMO, recent form suggests United are a stable side. Just some finishing issues here and there but Roma can be handled.

    Dzeko's been getting the goals and already has close to 30 goals this season but Nainggolan has a case of being the best CM in the world this season.

    We're still a bit shaky at the back but we've improved over the past 3 seasons. I'm glad we've eventually found out a system where we get the best from Dzeko cause he was starting to frustrate me every time we spring a counter.

    Would love for this to be the final! A very good side in good form that we can potentially see in the Champions League next season.

    What are the standout players this season for Roma apart from Dzeko?

    For me Salah and Nainggolan have been superb.
