Slavia Praha’s chief scout, Jakub Marek, discussed his side’s recent victory over the Giallorossi.

After the defeat in the first leg at the Olimpico in Rome, Slavia were able to beat Roma 2-0 in Prague a week ago.

In an interview with Tuttomercatoweb, Marek discussed the result. “We must always know that we can compete with top clubs like Roma.”

“Did they underestimate us? Absolutely, without a doubt. In Rome we played below our level, which is why they underestimated us in the return leg.”

“In football, if you start slowly, if you don’t play at your best, you lose control of the match. We scored quickly, then we needed this victory badly… We had to demonstrate our spirit to the fans and at home we can beat anyone.”
