Francesco Totti has commented on Roma’s value in recovering from last weekend’s defeat at Juventus to defeat Sampdoria in midweek.
Thursday evening saw the Giallorossi eliminate Samp from the Coppa Italia Last 16, with a 1-0 win at the Stadio Olimpico.
For their captain, responding to the previous weekend’s 3-0 defeat at Juventus was key.
“After the game against Juventus, it was very important to win right away, it is always the best way to restart correctly,” Totti has written on his personal website.
“I am happy that we have progressed through the round in the Coppa Italia against Sampdoria, it is a competition which we value.
“And on Sunday we host Genoa in the League, they are a team to be respected, but at the same time as facing them we will be aware of our strength, and with the clear goal of three points.”
