Atalanta midfielder Tiberio Guarente admits the dressing room is now talking about UEFA Cup qualification.

"European football is a dream for us," Guarente said on Radio Kiss Kiss.

"We are obviously pleased with the results that we managed to get from Roma and Inter and we want to continue on this path that will hopefully lead us to UEFA Cup qualification.

"We didn't start the season all that well and, like the other smaller sides, we have struggled away from home, but we seem to have sorted those problems out.

"First we just want to ensure that we are mathematically safe from relegation and only then will we think fully of other objectives."
