Borja Mayoral: 'I play to score goals'

Borja Mayoral makes his first start for Roma in the Europa League against Young Boys. ‘I am a striker, so I play to score goals.’

It kicks off at 17.55 UK time (16.55 GMT), click here for the line-ups and LIVEBLOG.

“It’s difficult for a forward to come to Italy, as the defences are very strong, but I can’t wait to get into it and learn,” the Spaniard told Sky Sport Italia.

“I am a striker, so I play to score goals and can’t wait to score in the Europa League too.”

His old club Real Madrid suffered a shock 3-2 home defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League last night.

“It was surprising, as it’s rare for Real Madrid to lose, but I hope they’ll do better this weekend against Barcelona.”
