Genoa defender Mimmo Criscito says European qualification is a target for them this season.
Genoa started the season poorly despite spending in excess of â‚¬30m and decided to sack Gian Piero Gasperini last month.
â€śGenoa can finish high up,â€ť Criscito said. â€śWe have shown that we are a great team.
â€śOur objective remains that of qualifying for Europe and we believe in ourselves.
â€śThere are many strong teams in our League but we have the strength to show that we deserve this position.
â€śSunday's win against Lecce gives us great motivation because conceding a goal 10 seconds before the end of the first half could have cut our legs off.
â€śInstead we reacted. We looked each other in the face in the dressing room and said that the game was within our reach.â€ť
