Paulo Dybala helped lead Roma’s comeback against Feyenoord to secure a place in Europa League semi-final with Bayer Leverkusen.

The Argentine attacker scored a crucial goal which pushed the Giallorossi into extra time and allowed them to get the result they needed.

Following the match, Dybala expressed his admiration for the home crowd’s constant support.

“The trip from Trigoria to the stadium was incredible,” he said to Sky Sport. “It was fantastic to see so many people on the streets.”

“The stadium packed with 70,000 fans helps you in times of difficulty, it’s like an extra player on the pitch with you.”

“At 2-1 people kept pushing, and in the end we got what we wanted. When they scored, I was a bit scared, but we equalized and then won in extra time. That felt good.”

“Our ambition? We all want to win, the coach has an incredible mentality. Mourinho had told us that the game would be like this. This team knows what it means to win in Europe, the mentality is there. There are just a few games left, we hope to continue like this and get us to the final,” he added.

“Mourinho? We all know him. He’s won everywhere he’s been. His mentality is enough to pull you in, he knows how games go, he knew today’s match could go like this and he pushed us to give something more.”

“The moment he changed the gameplan, the team got the result and we played better. We deservedly won. I hope I can continue like this and that the team continues like this. We will give our best to play in the final.”
