Lorenzo Pellegrini enthusiastic ahead of Rome derby

Andy Mattioli

Roma captain Lorenzo Pellegrini discussed the impact of tonight’s important result in the team’s Europa League campaign on their morale ahead of the Derby della Capitale.

“The atmosphere at the stadium was nice,“ Pellegrini told Sky Sport after the scoreless draw with Real Sociedad in San Sebastian.

“They wanted to win and tried right away, but we wanted to move forward in this competition and we did.”

“The Derby? It’s probably the perfect time to play it. When you play certain types of games and when you are a player for Roma, you have to recover all your energy and learn how to play important games every three days.”
