Roma coach Spalletti praise Baptista

Roma were 1-0 down against Bordeaux, but managed to hit back and win 1-3. Baptista scored two and Vucini scored once for Roma.

Spalletti said: “Baptista arrived at the end of the transfer window, went off for international duty and then had an injury, so he still needs time to settle in to Roma’s way of doing things.

“I like that he can play as a centre-forward or out wide, has power and quality. These goals will help him to make the breakthrough.”
