Roma shot-stopper Rui Patricio encouraged his side to quickly get over tonight’s 0-0 draw against Bologna and get ready for Thursday’s Conference League showdown against Leicester City.

The Portuguese goalkeeper made four saves against the Rossoblu, earning his 14th clean sheet of the campaign.

“We knew tonight would be difficult, especially knowing how Bologna plays,” he told Roma TV.

“Unfortunately we didn’t manage to win, but we’re still in the control of fifth place. There’s only a few matches left in the league and we want to finish as best as we can.”

“Now let’s move on and put our heads towards Thursday. We have a very important match and we want advance to the final.”

He continued, “We’re a club that aspires to win trophies. There’s less than four weeks remaining in the season and we’re still fighting both in Europe and in Serie A. Every season we must aim to win silverware.”

“Thursday is incredibly important for us. We’ll have a packed stadium with our supporters, who’ve been crucial to us this campaign. They’ve been extraordinary and their help will be decisive as we want to reach this final all together.”
