Starting in place of the injured Leonardo Spinazzola, Roma left back Riccardo Calafiori claimed that his team is calm as the most crucial stretch of their season begins.
The Giallorossi host Atalanta today in Rome before traveling to Cagliari then Manchester, respectively, on Sunday and Thursday for their following Serie A and Europa League fixtures.
“We’re calm but very focused,” the Italian said to Roma TV before kick-off this evening.
“This is the part of the season that matters most, so we’ll try and make the most of it. We want to do well tonight because winning helps build confidence. We want all three points.”
He added, “I’ve played a lot less in the league compared to the Europa League. So tonight is very important for me, we want to do well.”
