The Giallorossi coach Paulo Fonseca spoke to Roma TV on Tuesday, ahead of his side's Coppa Italia quarter-final against Juventus.
Wednesday's game at the Juventus Stadium gets underway at 20:45 local time - as the Giallorossi look to secure a third win in six days, following the victories over Parma (on Thursday) and Genoa (on Sunday).
“We’ve had a shortened preparation period for this game – the players have not fully recovered from the game against Genoa so we’ve worked strategically on tomorrow’s game," Fonseca said. "They are motivated and confident ahead of a great game against a top side like Juventus."
“The important thing tomorrow is to play with ambition, desire and confidence if we are to change this record from the last few years. We know it will be a very tough game, against a really strong side who are in good form. But will play to win.”
About the injured players: “Fazio is back now but Perotti,cPastore andcMkhitaryan are not ready. We hope to have Perotti back for the game against Lazio on Sunday.” On Kalinic: “He played really well against Parma and I have a lot of confidence in him. I’m sure he’ll have a good game tomorrow.”
