Roma’s Bryan Cristante praised his team’s approach in their Europa League elimination of Shakhtar Donetsk.

Cristante put in a strong shift in defence as he helped carry the Giallorossi to a 2-1 victory today over the Ukrainian side. The Italian has quietly transformed into one of Roma’s most versatile yet key figures this season.

“My teammates and I will do all we can to go as far as possible in both the league and Europa League,” he said at full-time to Roma TV.

“We did very good tonight to manage the result then exploit the space we were given in the second half. Team’s don’t play as compactly in European play like they do in Italy.”

He added, “Now we’ve got an important match on Sunday against Napoli. We must win and redeem ourselves after what happened against Parma.”
