Julio Baptista: “Roma-Madrid? Italian teams are difficult.”


Former Roma and Real Madrid attacker Julio Baptista spoke today to futbol.as.com as his two former clubs prepare to face-off in the Champions League in February, here are his words:

“Roma-Madrid? It will be complicated. I lost an elimination (match-up) with Roma and it was very painful. Real will have to prove on the pitch that they are the favorites. You can’t let your guard down: when you think things will be easy, they become difficult. Italian teams are always difficult to deal with.”
