Alisson: “The important thing is that we advance.”

Alisson to Sky Sport after Roma’s advancement in the Europa League despite losing 1-0:

You deserve the advancement after the good second half.
I agree. In the first half we left a little too much on the pitch and we had to improve. But we always had the result in hand with the right mindset. We were perhaps too calm but then we got better in the second half and we were able to get chances on goal. The result is not the best but the important thing is that we advance.
