Godin: ‘Atleti must deal with Dzeko’

Diego Godin admits Atletico Madrid must counter Roma striker Edin Dzeko as “we’ve lost too many goals in the air”.

The Spanish side are in Italy ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League clash with the Giallorossi, and the defender spoke in the pre-match Press conference.

“It’s a game we face with enthusiasm against a very tough opponent who can go through,” Godin said.

“This is a complicated group where everyone can go through, on our part there’s maximum enthusiasm.

“We want to win the Champions League and tomorrow is the start of a long road, our goal is to make this dream come true.

“Dzeko? We’ve conceded too many goals in the air at the start of this season. Dzeko is definitely physically strong, but it’s not just him.

“We’ve prepared to counteract Roma’s physical power.”
