Last season, Roma shocked the football world when they upturned three goals deficit against Barcelona in Italy.

Evening Standard quoted the 55-year-old as saying that, “Experiences help a lot.

“They could beat us. In football, lots of things can happen. They are good, very good. They have lost only one match this season in the Premier League. They are extraordinary with set pieces. There is no relaxation.

“It’s clear we had a bad result last year. We weren’t good. Football gives you another opportunity. We played well in the first leg and we want to repeat. We are mentally prepared.”

About their last defeat in Rome, he said, “I don’t fear a comeback. The matches are there to be played. In the Barca-PSG tie, everyone thought PSG would go through if they scored, but Barca went and scored six.

“Nothing is written. You have to write it.”
