Roma defender Roger Ibañez reiterated his side need to continue to show the defensive solidity on display in recent weeks tonight against Udinese.

The Giallorossi face-off against the Zebrette tonight in Friuli with a chance to extend their unbeaten league streak to nine.

“Obviously we’re happy with the number of clean sheets we’ve kept recently, but we have to continue doing so again tonight,” the Brazilian told DAZN.

“We need to keep working harder.”

The defender also commented on Jose Mourinho’s return to the bench tonight folliowing his two-match suspension.

“He’s always with us but having him on the pitch with us makes a big difference,” stated Ibañez.
