As Atalanta and Roma prepare to kick-off this evening, Giallorossi boss Daniele De Rossi appeared on DAZN, detailing the capital club’s approach to the crucial showdown.

The pressure is on Roma as they enter the game level on 60 points with the hosts. However, La Dea have a match in-hand and won’t replay their game against Fiorentina until June 2nd.

“[The defeat against] Leverkusen must now be an unpleasant memory. Our focus is on the Champions League, and tonight is critical,” described De Rossi.

“There’s no time to be sad or tired. This is a different competition, with different objectives for our future and how Roma will look next year.”

Finally, “How to stop their attack? No one has figured it out yet. They have many players who attack en masse; it’s not easy to always keep up with them.”
