Ballardini: Roma a quality side

Davide Ballardini is aware that his Bologna side will come up against a ‘quality’ Roma outfit on Saturday.

The Rossoblu host the Giallorossi tomorrow night, looking for the three points that could take them five points clear of the relegation zone.

But the Coach has conceded that his team will be up against it at Renato Dell’Ara.

“We know that we’re going to come up against a very good team,” he told a Press conference.

“Roma play between the lines and have great movement without the ball. It’s going to be tough to try and climb up the table this weekend.

“But we’re going to face them with an aggression but also a discipline, that will hopefully mean we’re difficult to beeat.

“Roma haven’t changed much since the start of the season. They’ve kept the same backbone to the team and are playing some great stuff.

“They’re a team with international-class players, but we’re playing them knowing that. We’ve practiced for the type of match we want to produce.”
