Real Madrid full-back Dani Carvajal believes his side’s trip to Roma is crucial for their ambitions of winning their Champions League group.
The European champions are tied with Roma on nine points at the top of their group, while a draw on Tuesday night will book their place in the last 16 of the competition.
“We have to win the group,” Carvajal told reporters at his pre-match press conference.
“We’ll need all our attributes, but also the coolness to be able to manage the game at any moment.
“It’ll be a difficult match, we’re well aware of what Roma did last season so we’ll need to be focused and not show any fear.
“Given they’re playing at home, I expect Roma will try to press us high up the pitch and play their game.”
