"I'm sure we can beat Genoa" - Roma coach Luis Enrique
The Spaniard is convinced that the Giallorossi will rack up another three points at home against a struggling Genoa outfit.
Luis Enrique, the coach of AS Roma, is confident that his side will obtain maximum points when they welcome Genoa to the Stadio Olimpico on Monday.
Roma, who have won their last four games against Genoa in the Italian capital, have been rather inconsistent this season, and Enrique will be hoping that his team correct the situation.
"I don't know what sort of game it will be on Monday evening. We've been inconsistent recently. The reason for our performances always depends on the opponents and the form of our team," Enrique explained to Roma's official website.
"We'll try to spend as much time in the opposition's half as possible, as we always do, and we will continue with the idea that we should be in possession as much as possible, and win the ball back quickly when we lose it. That's what we work towards in training every week."
The Spaniard also admitted that Roma have improved a great deal in recent months, and will be looking for a second win on the trot after ousting Palermo 1-0 last weekend.
"I see the team have been making progress for many months now. Losing one or two games doesn't make me think we've stopped improving. I know that results are important, that's the law of soccer, but as far as I'm concerned I've always seen improvement from my players, week after week," concluded the coach.
Having lost their last two encounters against Genoa, the Romans will be desperate to claim maximum points on home soil in order to move closer towards the UEFA Champions League qualification zone.
