Daniele De Rossi said the Champions League draw gives Roma “both disappointment and enthusiasm” against Chelsea and Atletico Madrid.
The Giallorossi are in a very tough group, which is rounded out by Qarabag.
“We are never particularly happy after these draws,” confessed the captain on Roma TV.
“On the one hand there is disappointment, but on the other the enthusiasm to start by facing world class teams.
“There’s the right motivation and our fans will enjoy some wonderful evenings. We must prepare, it’ll be a difficult group, but exciting and interesting too.”
