Diego Perotti admits “when the draw was made, nobody believed” in Roma, but they won the group ahead of Chelsea and knocked out Atletico Madrid.
“It’s a wonderful moment for us,” the Argentine told Mediaset Premium.
“When the draw was made, nobody believed in us, but we worked hard and I think we deserved this first place.”
The Giallorossi secured qualification with a 1-0 victory over Qarabag, while Chelsea and Atletico Madrid drew 1-1.
“It was tough tonight, as Qarabag were all sitting back and acting as if they had something to play for.
“We were patient, as these games can be dangerous, but we kept our heads and fought together for the goal. Now we’re going to enjoy it.”
