Roma coach Luciano Spalletti is expecting a difficult encounter when his side meet Manchester United in the quarter-finals of the Champions League but he is confident his team can upset the odds.
“At this point of the competition, all the teams are strong,” said Spalletti.
“It would have been perhaps easier to have met a team like PSV Eindhoven but the truth is that all the teams that have made it to the last eight have proved to have a lot of character and determination.”
“Unlike us, Man Utd have a lot of experience in this competition and a lot of tradition,” said Spalletti.
“They are a very strong team, they have a young side that have individual quality, a big team spirit and is one of the most complete teams in the competition.
“But we have do what we did against Lyon, we have to be convinced for our worth and be optimistic about our chances.
“After all, our football is more technical and better tactically than English football.
“I have confidence in my team, we have every intention of going all the way.”
