Francesco Totti believes AS Roma can finish second in the Champions League group G which also consists of reigning champions Real Madrid.
Roma had a fairytale run last season as they got the better of Spanish giants Barcelona in the Champions League quarterfinal. They came very close in reaching the final hurdle but they were outclassed by a superior Liverpool in the semifinal.
The Giallorossi will also have to encounter with CSKA Moscow and Czech champions Viktoria in the Champions League group stage. Madrid are destined to be the group champion as it seems but the Italian side do have the ammunition to press them hard.
The former Roma forward who also happens to be the director of football at his beloved club feels his team will do everything to secure the second spot in the group. “On paper, it all seems very simple
“Last season, everyone thought we’d finish third in our group, but instead we beat everyone and came out on top. This is a tough group.
“We know that Real Madrid will have a tournament all on their own, so we’ll do everything we can to finish second.”
