Fonseca: ‘Easy to understand Inter, but…’

Roma coach Paulo Fonseca believes ‘it’s easy to understand how Inter play, but it’s difficult to stop them,’ and confirms Leonardo Spinazzola will be fit to play tomorrow.

The Giallorossi host Inter at the Olimpico on Sunday. The match kicks off at 11.30 GMT.

“Inter have great players with a strong identity. It’s easy to understand how the play, but it’s difficult to face them,” Fonseca said at a press conference.

“We have prepared the game thinking about their collective, but also about their single players.

“We can make no mistakes, we must be solid at the back and have self-belief when we have the ball possession, we’ve been working on details to avoid mistakes.

“Everyone is motivated, we have the ambition to play a great game,” the Portuguese added.

“Leonardo Spinazzola has recoverd from an injury and will play tomorrow,” Fonseca confirmed.

Will Roma be considered title contenders if they beat Inter?

“We are only focused on the game, then we’ll think about Lazio. I don’t think we should think about anything else at the moment.

“We have many games ahead and it’s crucial to have fit players.

“There is a different atmosphere now, there are no fans at the stadium, but they always support us here in Trigoria and when we go to the stadium, we must play a great game for them.”

Antonio Mirante is out of action with an injury and Pau Lopez will start the game.

“[Daniel] Fuzato will be the back-up goalkeeper,” Fonseca concluded.
