But the Italian hit-man has also warned his side ahead of the clash.
“This is a game that we need to play well in,” he told La Gazzetta Dello Sport.
“Everyone has been talking about Roma being in crisis but you wouldn’t tell looking at the way they played against Chelsea.
“To be honest, I would have preferred not to have played Roma at the moment.
“Will they find it difficult against us? I don’t know. In any case we are on the right track.
“We are a complete and compact group and we need to continue showing this week after week.”
