Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers: “We have to embrace the pressure.”

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers previewed a pivotal Conference League semifinal return leg at the Olimpico scheduled for Thursday night.

“Maddison and Dewsbury-Hall are fine, yesterday they regularly trained with the rest of the group,” he said.

“Tomorrow we must have the same mentality that got us here in the first place. We know how to win. Rennes, PSV, those were not easy games but we won and went through.”

When asked about the expectations regarding Roma’s gameplan he said, “I think they’ll play similarly to the first leg. Perhaps they’ll attack a bit more.”

“Roma’s real threat is their counter-attacking football and set-pieces.”

On having to face a packed Olimpico, Rodgers commented, “We know we’ll have to embrace the pressure and at the same time use it to our advantage. We’ve played in difficult stadiums, this won’t be the first time.”
