Roma midfielder Bryan Cristante – who recovered in time for tonight’s first leg of the Conference League semifinal at the King Power Stadium – was interviewed by Sky Sport after the final whistle.
“They were moving very well on the pitch,” he said. “As the match went on we learned to read them better.”
“The return leg at the Olimpico will be a battle like tonight, it will be tough. We’ll have to give another fine performance.”
“We showed that when we’re focused an fit we can play with anybody,” he added.
“For the majority of the season what we’ve been missing is continuity which we found in the second half to the campaign.”
“If we want to compete for a top four finish me must learn to always have that continuity.”
