Chelsea can seal qualification for the Champions League knockout stages if they beat Roma and other results go their way on Tuesday night.

The Group C rivals meet at the Stadio Olimpico to conclude the second half of their double header, having previously shared the points in a thrilling 3-3 Stamford Bridge draw on October 18.




Edin Dzeko and Eden Hazard scored two goals apiece in the six-goal spectacle, though both Eusebio Di Francesco and Antonio Conte will be keen on defensive improvements in Rome.

Chelsea currently top the group with seven points from three games, and can qualify for the last-16 with two games to spare if Atletico Madrid fail to beat Qarabag in the Spanish capital on Halloween.

Start time

Roma host Chelsea at the Stadio Olimpico with kick-off scheduled for 7.45pm on Tuesday, October 31.

TV and live online coverage

The match will be televised live on BT Sport 2, with coverage from 7pm. BT Sport subscribers will be able to stream the match online via the video player and the BT Sport app.

You can follow all the goals and action from 6:30pm with New Gersy blog.

Team news

Chelsea
Conte will be hoping that N’Golo Kante is back in contention from a hamstring injury, though the Chelsea coach now has Danny Drinkwater back after a calf strain.

N'Golo Kante trained lightly on Monday before the Chelsea squad flew out to Italy and could be involved after a hamstring injury.

If the Frenchman is ready to make his comeback, Victor Moses is the only player the Blues will be missing for this match.

Victor Moses remains out of action with a hamstring problem suffered in the 2-1 defeat at Crystal Palace.




Roma
Roma defender Kostas Manolas is a major doubt due to a thigh strain.

Bruno Peres and Rick Karsdorp are definitely out and Roma may also be without Gregoire Defrel, who came off in the win over Bologna at the weekend.

Patrik Schick, Gregoire Defrel, Emerson Palmieri Kevin Strootman and Stephan El Shaarawy are further doubts for the Italians, though the latter pair could be available for Roma manager Eusebio Di Francesco.

Predicted line-ups

Roma starting XI: Alisson; Bruno Peres, Juan Jesus, Fazio, Kolarov; De Rossi, Strootman, Nainggolan; Florenzi, Perotti, Dzeko

Chelsea starting XI: Courtois; Cahill, Luiz, Azpilicueta; Zappacosta, Fabregas, Bakayoko, Alonso; Pedro, Hazard, Morata
