Cristaldo Believes Bologna Can Upset Roma

Bologna attacker Jonathan Cristaldo believes his team has what it takes to upset the Giallorossi in their encounter on Saturday, even though Roma won the first meeting between the clubs by five goals.

“We expect a very difficult game but we want to do the best we can. Believe us, we can make a game. We remember the first leg but now it is different, Roma itself was in good form, however, that is different today. In the last few weeks, we are different, we have more confidence. Today the team is more compact than before, we defend better and we come from a very good match in Milan. The Giallorossi are dangerous, if you do not use maximum concentration it is likely they will punish you, we can not be distracted for even a minute, and already we have seen, like at the San Siro, against certain kind teams it just takes a moment to score a goal.”
