Roma are ready to face Cagliari at the Sardegna Arena after their access to the next round of the UEL. Fonseca leads a team that has regained confidence.
Most of the Serie A matches have been postponed to May but the next challenge of the Lupi will take place on Sunday at 12:00 PM at the Sardegna Arena. Cagliari had more time to study Roma’s tactical system while Fonseca’s men traveled to Belgium to face Gent in the Europa League second leg match.
Roma may have the right confidence at this time. The Giallorossi got access to the next stage of the European competition but to do so they had to spend a lot of energy. Will Roma be able to contrast Cagliari’s freshness?
In today’s press conference ahead of Cagliari-Roma, the coach of the Lupi clearly expressed his concern. His team didn’t have much time to rest and prepare for the match.
“The team is tired. We didn’t have much time to recover from a challenging match on a difficult pitch,” Fonseca said to the press today.
Although the preconditions do not seem to be favorable for seeing a team in perfect physical shape, the Portuguese coach thinks positively: “We trained well and the team is motivated and confident.”
The qualification to the next edition of the Champions League is still possible. The Giallorossi must give their best to reach that dream. Paulo Fonseca truly believes his team has the chance to surprise everyone.
“First of all, I am an optimistic and positive person. We all have a chance and I don’t think Atalanta won’t lose points until the end of the championship,” Fonseca said at the press conference ahead of Cagliari-Roma.
