“Yes, but it’s better if we think a victory is necessary, as that way we’ll know what we need to do.”
Alessandro Florenzi said Roma almost “deserved” to concede a late equaliser because they were too negative in the second half.
“Everyone said when the draw was made that we were basically guests in the group, but we will challenge for qualification right to the final game. It’s still a truly fantastic opportunity for us.”
If the Giallorossi draw 0-0 with Manchester City and CS网络外围投注KA Moscow fail to beat Bayern Munich, they will still go through.
“The only truly disappointing thing is the equaliser, as we would’ve been practically qualified otherwise,” added Garcia.

“Strootman needs to play in order to rediscover match fitness in a competitive situation. We introduced Miralem Pjanic to keep the ball and with Iturbe to go on the counter. We lost the ball in midfield and this allowed CSKA a counter-attack.”

“When we don’t score a second goal, we are at risk of an equaliser like that. We should finish off games. There were only 10 seconds to go and we were practically qualified,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.
“In the end, whatever happens tonight in Manchester, we have to win the final game. At least that means it’s still in our hands, which is the objective we had going into this group.
