Salzburg defender Strahinja Pavlovic discussed the upcoming Europa League engagements with Roma in February and the challenges that await as he prepares to face the likes of Paulo Dybala and Tammy Abraham.

“Roma are an excellent team,” Pavlovic said in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport. “They have a top manager in Mourinho,” added the 21-year-old.

“Given my role as a centreback, I will be facing two great players like Paulo Dybala and Tammy Abraham, a great test for me.”

“We respect Roma a lot, but we believe in our own strengths and are aware of having a chance to succeed in this competition.”
