Lecce manager Marco Baroni spoke in his pre-match presser to preview tomorrow night’s Roma showdown at the Stadio Olimpico.

“Being able to go to Rome is a wonderful, beautiful experience. Everyone would like to play on an extraordinary stage such as the Olimpico,” he told reporters on Saturday morning.

“We have an incredible following of fans, all the reasons are there for us to do well tomorrow.”

“It is going to be very difficult to play against a very strong team, they have great quality and are hurt by the recent defeat against Betis. We absolutely have to make a good impression and try and put up a fight.”

“Roma are a very solid team, with crazy physicality, just look at the solutions at their disposal from set-pieces.”

“We must not fear this and with great humility we will try to put you in difficulty. I have to tell the truth: I know it will be a complicated game. They have spent a lot of effort with Betis and have a decisive return leg in Seville.”

“Mourinho wants to win even if he plays bingo, they have many players at their disposal and they will be looking to bounce back.”
