Fazio: ‘Braga not easy’

Federico Fazio warns Roma Braga are a tough team and reveals who his idol was when he was a child.

The Giallorossi have been drawn with Braga in the Europa League Round of 32.

“We could have had an easier draw,” Fazio told Centro Suono Sport.

“Braga play really well, I’ve watched them play. It won’t be easy to qualify for the next stage,” the Argentinean said.

Roma won 5-1 away at Bologna on Sunday, what’s their target this season?

"It’s still a long way. It was important to win, especially because we’ll have many matches now.”

Serie A clubs will play three games in the space of a week, starting from Wednesday.

Roma will host Torino on Thursday.

Fazio did also reveal who his idol was when he was a child.

“It was [Gabriel Omar] Batistuta. I never watched him live but it was thrilling to watch him play on tv.”

The former Argentinean striker scored 33 goals in 83 games with the Giallorossi and won one Scudetto. The last one in the club's history so far.
