Cengiz Under believes “Real Madrid and everyone else” will have more respect for Roma after last year’s win over Barcelona.
The Giallorossi completed an extraordinary comeback in last season’s Champions League quarter-final, winning 3-0 at the Olimpico to progress on away goals after a 4-1 defeat in Catalonia.
“Against Barcelona we got an result which was unlikely after the first leg,” Under recalled, speaking to Sky.
“It was an extraordinary thing that no-one expected. I think Real Madrid and everyone else will have more respect for us.
“In the meantime we have Chievo on Sunday, we’re aiming to win that and then concentrate on Real Madrid.
“Once we overcome Chievo we can concentrate on Real Madrid as soon as possible.”
