Cape Town - AS Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan thinks the club need divine intervention in order to overcome Real Madrid in the last-16 of the UEFA Champions league.

The two European heavyweights  face off at the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday evening with the return leg scheduled for early next month.

And the Belgian admits it will be a tough ask to stop Los Blancos from progressing to the next round.

"We need a miracle," the 27-year old told Marca.

"I like Real Madrid's playing style, I think it's worth that of Barcelona.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is an extraordinary player, the one that marks the difference between Real Madrid and other teams."
