Atalanta midfielder Mario Pasalić insisted his side need to get a result tonight against Roma in Round 7 of Serie A.
The Giallorossi host La Dea in the Italian capital in a sold-out Stadio Olimpico with over 65,000 spectators on-hand.
“I think this is going to be a good match,” the midfielder told DAZN just before kick-off.
“Roma are strong and strengthened a lot this summer. We want to see how we stack up against the teams aiming to finish high up in the table.”
“We’re also curious to see how we react to a tough environment in packed stadium. Our aim is to stay high up in the standings so if we want to do this we’ll have to get a result tonight.”
