Daniele de Rossi admits AS Roma need a miracle to finish in the Champions League places this season. The Giallorossi are presently joint-seventh in Serie A, but 12 points behind leaders Juventus and 10 shy of Milan and Udinese.

"The aim is to try and get into the top three and qualify for the Champions League," the midfielder told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

"However, I have to admit that it would take a miracle for that to happen."
