Look for cheap Rome hostels to 'enjoy Champions League action'
Roma will entertain Bayern Munich at the Stadio Olimpico when the two teams clash in the return fixture of the Champions League tournament.

It is sure to be an entertaining match for many football fans, as both teams aim to get through Group E as winners, so those interested would be wise to book a cheap Rome hostel now and grab their spot in the 82,000 seater stadium.

The pair have already met once in the Champions League this season, when the German giants welcomed the Italians into the Allianz Arena and then dominated the game, grabbing 73.8 per cent of the total possession and walking away from that fixture with a 2-0 win and their first three points of the tournament.

Since then, Bayern Munich, who were runners-up in last season's Champions League competition, have also beaten Basle 2-1 to continue their 100 per cent start in this prestigious tournament.

However, the club has not had it so easily domestically, having so far only picked up two wins out of seven games in the Bundesliga, leaving them lying in 12th position after losses against such teams as Borussia Dortmund and FC Kaiserslautern.

Looking at Roma's current form could make the game look even more unpredictable for those who snap up some cheap hostels in Rome.

That is because the Italian club find themselves inside the relegation zone of Serie A following six games of their season, having only gained one victory, though that was an impressive win against current Champions League holders Inter Milan.

Losses against such teams like Napoli, Brescia and Cagliari have not been as impressive for fans of the club, though they have managed to get off the block in the Champions League with a win over CFR Cluj-Napoca to give some cheer in the Italian capital.
