Nainggolan expects to start at Barca

Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan has given the Italian side a boost ahead of their clash with Barcelona by declaring himself as ready to play.

The Giallorossi are travelling to the Catalan capital on Tuesday ahead of the first leg of their Champions League quarter final against the Spanish league leaders.

“I’m fine, otherwise I would not be here and not travelling,” the Roma midfielder told fans at the airport.

The Belgian international was a fitness doubt for Eusebio Di Francesco’s side for their trip to the Camp Nou.
