AS Roma are targeting a top three finish, says striker Pablo Daniel Osvaldo.

Osvaldo struck the winner against Genoa on Monday night.

"Of course we believe in finishing third," the summer signing from Espanyol told Sky Sport Italia. "It wouldn't make sense if we didn't…"

Despite the win, Roma didn't impress boss Luis Enrique and the forward admits there is room for improvement.

"The important thing was that we won," added the 26-year-old. "I wanted to score as I started the New Year badly.

"Fortunately we collected the three points and we are close to the other sides chasing a place in Europe. The more games we play, the more we are finding a balance and an identity."
