Roma midfielder Daniele de Rossi was delighted with their victory over Fiorentina yesterday. A Francesco Totti screamer just before the hour mark proved the winner for Roma.

"We deserved this win against a Fiorentina team very determined to bounce back after their setback against Lyon," said De Rossi. "Fiorentina created many chances, but Roma held our nerve and played an exceptional game.

"Roma must start with the goal of being among the top four in the league. Then, if something more happens, even better."
