The general director of the giallorossi speaks about the upcoming Serie A match against Atalanta and the reduced European sentence that hit Roma lately.
Although the Lupi have defeated Torino in the opening Serie A match, the second game, that will take place on Monday, is even more important for Roma.
According to Mauro Baldissoni, the familiar environment of the Stadio Olimpico in Rome can definitely boost the performance of Di Francesco‘s men this season. The atmosphere at home will have a big impact on Roma in the 2018-19 campaign. The data unveiled in reference to the Champions League season ticket is even more encouraging. 30,000 people decided to secure their seat to push EDF’s guys to another memorable European adventure.
“In my opinion, the real start is always at the Olimpico albeit we have played the first match in Turin,” Baldissoni said to ‘Roma Radio’. “The Stadio Olimpico had security measure issues in the recent years. We really appreciate the efforts our fans made to support the team.”
The unfortunate episode that happened against Liverpool FC last season is still vivid in everyone’s mind. Mauro Baldissoni pushed the Roma fans to make a necessary leap in quality.
“We ask all fans to behave in the right manner, both at the Stadio Olimpico and at away games. UEFA has reduced our sentence after the appeal we have presented. We managed to get just a one-game of suspension.”
The Roma fans can rejoice and follow the first Champions League away match in this season’s group stage.
