Dzeko pleased with brace in Empoli win

Edin Dzeko to SportMediaset after scoring twice in Roma’s 2-0 win over Empoli:

“I’m happy, perhaps we played only a normal match because we were already thinking about the next one.”

We’ll watch calmly since we handled ours. A draw would be nice.

It’s an important match, too, we have to prepare very well, we lost the first leg 2-0 and it’s difficult now because if we conceded just one we’ll need 4. We are strong and we will do everything to reach the final.
