Fonseca: 'Complicated Gent draw'

Paulo Fonseca warns Roma that they face “two complicated games” in the Europa League Round of 32 with KAA Gent.

The Giallorossi will play the first leg at the Olimpico on February 20 at 20.00 UK time, with the return in Ghent on February 27 at 17.55 UK time.

“Gent are a good team, they are third in their league and secured first place in a difficult group ahead of sides like Wolfsburf and Saint-Etienne,” Fonseca told the official Roma website.

“We have two complicated games ahead of us and I am sure we will face them with the courage and ambition of those who want to win.”

Meanwhile, Gent coach Jess Thorup also commented on the Europa League Round of 32 draw.

“Roma are not the easiest team to face, as they have a lot of experience and are a top level club. It’s going to be very difficult.

“We know that Italian teams are strong. It’s a big test for us to play one of the best teams in Europe.”
