EDF: Roma return for pair

Eusebio Di Francesco confirms Diego Perotti and Radja Nainggolan are in Roma’s squad for Qarabag as he admits “only going through tomorrow counts.”

Nainggolan and Perotti both missed Roma’s 3-1 Serie A victory over SPAL on Saturday, the latter involved in a car crash, but the pair are available for the visit of Qarabag, which is a must-win for the Giallorossi if they are to book their place in the Champions League last 16.

“We must play aggressively, coming out in a determined manner,” the Coach said at a Press conference.

“They’ve done very well away from home and not been the team we saw at Chelsea in the first game.

“Still, if we play like we know how, we can this overcome the obstacle. They deserve great respect and spring on our part, but we want to win.

“Serie A? I’m only looking at it in relative terms. Who’s top of the table right now? Inter, so I want us to compete with them. Only going through tomorrow counts.

“Winning in Europe is never easy, but Roma are getting better at it. Nainggolan and Perotti will both be called up, and we’re happy about this.

“Kolarov will be assessed first, given he’s a bit tired, but I think he’ll recover too.”
