Campagnaro respects Roma threat

Inter will have to be in top form if they are to stop Roma on Saturday, says Nerazzurri centre-back Hugo Campagnaro.

The League leaders will take their 100 per cent record to San Siro this weekend as they will face a side who have yet to lose under new boss Walter Mazzarri.

“We know what sort of team Roma are and we respect them, but we have to focus on ourselves and on gelling so that we can play together off by heart,” the summer signing from Napoli told Sky Sport Italia.

“They're a fantastic team who have scored loads and conceded very few. We're not worried by that, but it does mean we'll have to really be on top of our game.

“Another thing about them is that they've strengthened their team with players who are doing really well.

“Just look at Mehdi Benatia this year for example and Morgan De Sanctis, who's kept loads of clean sheets.”

Roma have scored 17 goals in their six matches so far, conceding just once in the process. Inter have netted 16, conceding three.

The Beneamata are fourth in the table, four points behind Rudi Garcia’s men.
