Francesco Totti says today’s Derby della Capitale is “the last chance for the Champions League” as far as Roma are concerned.
The Giallorossi go head-to-head with their arch rivals this afternoon and Totti returns from suspension.
“This is the last chance for the Champions League, because if we lose then we’ll be 10 points adrift of Lazio and it would be very difficult for us to catch them,” said Totti ahead of the 14.00 UK time kick-off.
“This is a difficult match, different compared to all the others. We hope to put in a good performance, above all, to win.”
