“It’s a crucial game because Roma won their first match and we lost, so it’s important at home to win our first three points,” Pellegrini said. “It will be a very tough group and we cannot drop points here at home. It’s very important for us to win that game.
“I hope that the team will play the same way as we have this week. I’m very happy with all the performances, against Chelsea, against Sheffield Wednesday and on Saturday. I hope we can continue to stay in the same way.
