Hey everyone, there's a Barcelona game going on today! I know you want to see El Clásico on a loop for the rest of your life, but let's move on. In the end, destroying Madrid in November won't mean a thing if you don't win a title in June. And to win a Champions League in June, today's matchup is important.

Roma comes to town for matchday five of the European Cup group stage, and either a draw or a win will qualify the Blaugranes for the knockout rounds AND clinch Group E. It's also an opportunity to keep the momentum going after El Clásico and extend the unbeaten streak to nine games, the biggest this season.

For today, Lionel Messi is almost certain to start, which is a bit of a risky move because his match fitness is not great for 90 minutes. But Leo had very good minutes in Madrid, and he is desperate to play at home again for the full game. That means the 'MSN' trio will probably start together for the first time in two months. We know how destructive they are together, and this could be the start of another world-beating run from the world's best attacking front.

Will Barça keep the momentum going and win the group, or will the Italians spoil the party? That's where we turn to you, community! Use the comment section below and predict the final score for tonight's matchup. Good luck!
