Former Roma midfielder Emerson: Roma are favored against Bayern

Former Roma midfielder Emerson was asked about tonight’s match between Roma and Bayern by TuttomercatoWeb:

“Roma are playing at home – they are definitely favored, they really are a formidable team, but Bayern always plays to score. When they drew the groups of the Champions League, I immediately said that the Germans and Roma would make it out of the group, I believe it now even more.”
