Bologna Coach Stefano Pioli has the utmost respect for today’s opponents Roma. “They are second only to Juventus and Milan.”
The Rossoblu were beaten 2-0 at home by Luis Enrique’s men when they last met in December, so are bracing themselves for the trip to the Olimpico.
“I am very relaxed, because we worked hard in training and everyone is ready for this tough week,” said the Coach.
They take on Fiorentina in the midweek round and then travel to Lecce next weekend.
“We start at the Olimpico against a Roma side who in my view are second only to Juventus and Milan at the moment.
“Bologna have gained confidence from recent outings, as we were solid and must continue that trend. We’re here looking for a positive result.”
