ROME, SEPT 12: Roma host Atletico Madrid on Tuesday in an opening game of the Champions League group stages which Italian coach Eusebio Di Francesco believes will be crucial to their ambitions.
In a Group C that also includes Premier League champions Chelsea, both sides desperately need to win in the Stadio Olimpico.
Di Francesco insists Roma can match the technique and tactics of the Spanish -- runners-up in 2014 and 2016 to Real Madrid.
"(Diego) Simeone's squad have a clear identity," Di Francesco said. "Perhaps less flair, but very tactically sound and they always know what their role is. They have reached two Champions League finals and you don't do that by accident. They have strong mental and physical qualities."    �AFP
