Daniele De Rossi knows these matches are insidious but he is also confident that Roma can do well at the Estadio do Dragao.

We have a small advantage. Their goal hurt us, though. We know that the qualification is not guaranteed but this is a good result anyway,” said Daniele De Rossi.

I would have been happy if they told me we were going to win 2-1. Bit we shouldn’t have suffered that goal. Now we have a 51% possibility to go ahead.”

The Roma captain also praised Zaniolo for his dedication and quality. “He has both physical and technical arrogance. He will be a great player. He’ll become a champion,” concluded De Rossi.
