Maicon: 'Roma must show strength'

Roma have lost the Serie A leadership, but Douglas Maicon insists they will “show our strength” against Atalanta.

It kicks off in Bergamo at 14.00 GMT, click here for a match preview.

The Giallorossi had won their opening 10 games, but have now drawn three on the bounce and been overtaken by Juventus.

“After 10 consecutive victories, it was only normal that a little fatigue would creep in, above all because most of us are internationals and make long journeys,” Maicon told Roma Channel.

“Having said that, we cannot keep dropping points the way we have done recently, especially on home turf.

“The time has come to show our strength, starting from Bergamo.”
