Florenzi: Roma will progress in the Champions League

Alessandro Florenzi was interviewed in tomorrow’s edition of AS Roma Match Program ahead of the team’s match against CSKA Moscow.

At the Arena Khimki, what kind of match will it be?
It is a very important match, to which we’ll arrive with the utmost concentration. They’re (Moscow) very dangerous at home, and fortunately for us they will not have the support of their since we’ll play behind closed doors. We must not make the error of thinking everything will be as easy as the first leg, because they’ll try the best to their potential to erase the bad performance at the Olimpico. It will be very cold, we’re not used to playing in such cold temperatures as they are.

There are many missing in defense: what if the manager puts you there?
I always play with enthusiasm and desire, (I will play) wherever the manager puts me.

A prediction?
We’ll win.

Who will qualify in the group?
First place is mathemtically already assigned to the Germans, and in this match we’ll be playing with a 90% chance of qualifying. I think we have a good chance.

Roma will advance, for sure.
