Daniele De Rossi has said that Roma need something of a miracle in order to get something out of the match against Juventus.
Roma have spent heavily in the summer, but their spending has not correlated with the results on the pitch. Even though they are only a few points away from getting into the Champions League qualification spot, the amount of spending and the football that has been delivered are largely different from each other. There will be taking on a Juventus side that has been in sensational form in the Italian Serie A this season. There has been a lot of talk that Juventus are well and truly back to where they belong.
Due to the fact that the European coefficients has reduced the number of qualifications from the Italian Serie A to just three, Roma need to finish in the top three in order to have any chance of getting into the group stages of the Champions League. Daniele De Rossi conceded that the chances of Roma finishing in such a lofty position do look weak at the moment. Roma have got only 17 points from the 13 matches they have played so far. There are likely to finish in the top three given the performances and the points that they have secured up until now.
“It would be a real miracle if Roma manage to finish in the top three and qualify for the Champions League. However, we will definitely try to achieve just that,” Daniele De Rossi was quoted as saying by La Gazzetta dello Sport. There has also been a lot of pressure on the current Roma coach Luis Enrique, but the midfielder has said that every coach needs some time before they can actually make some difference to the team.
