The group stage of the 2015/16 Champions League tournament continues this week with a number of intriguing games, including Barcelona vs Roma.

Barcelona is entering this contest with a great deal of momentum, as they are coming off of a destruction of Real Madrid in this past weekend's "El Clasico" match. Barcelona, which is stocked with some of the best talent in the world, is seemingly the team to beat at this point in the Champions League tournament.

Barcelona currently sits at the top of Group E with a record of 3-1-0, while Roma is next with a record of 1-2-1. Barcelona, having already built up a 5 point lead after just four games, has a bit of breathing room. Roma, on the other hand, finds itself in a battle with both Bayer and BATE for the second spot in the group. For that reason, Tuesday's game against Barcelona takes on an even greater importance for Roma, as they are fighting for their very lives in this tournament.

Roma managed to play Barcelona to a 1-1 draw in their first match on September 16th, 2015, but things will be much harder for Roma on Tuesday as they head to Barcelona.

Here are the current odds for the Barcelona/Roma game on Tuesday:

Barcelona, 1.28
Draw, 5.00
Roma, 12.00

According to these odds, a successful $100 wager on Barcelona would yield a total profit of $28, while a successful $100 bet on Roma would yield a total profit of $1,100.

Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar, Jr. are all expected to see action on Tuesday - here are their current odds to score:

Lionel Messi, 1.65
Luis Suarez, 1.65
Neymar, Jr., 1.75

The two players from Roma with the best odds to score, on the other hand, are Edin Dzeko (3.60) and Francesco Totti (3.80).
