AS Roma coach Rudi Garcia insists there's more to this season's success than luck.

Roma go for their tenth consecutive win against Chievo Verona tonight.

"When we lose Francesco Totti, Gervinho and Douglas Maicon, we are not lucky," argued Garcia.

"Besides, fortune favours the brave. Look at the goalline clearance by Leandro Castan - that was not luck. It was hunger, determination and grit. The same goes for Daniele De Rossi's clearance against Napoli. If you want to call that luck, then I guess we're lucky.

"We are in Week 10, so the sprint finish is still a long way off. Our objective is to fight to the end with the favourites, Juventus and Napoli."
