Milan: Roma coach Rudi Garcia has promised Bayern Munich a red-hot welcome when the Bundesliga giants arrive in the Italian capital looking to spoil the Giallorossi's great start to the Champions League.

Roma warmed up for today's Group E clash with a resounding 3-0 defeat of Chievo on Saturday and although Pep Guardiola's side routed Werder Bremen 6-0, Garcia wants a packed-out Stadio Olimpico to give the hosts something extra.

"Bayern are ready and they will be on a high but we're counting on a red hot atmosphere at the Olimpico. We can't wait, it will be a fantastic game," Garcia said after Saturday's win, which left Roma just a point adrift of Serie A leaders Juventus.

Roma have made a remarkable return to the Champions League following a three-year absence, following up a 5-1 defeat of CSKA Moscow with a creditable 1-1 draw away to Manchester City. Bayern have registered back-to-back wins over the same opposition.
