Udinese coach Pasquale Marino isn't buying into the hype that Roma are on the slide.

"Roma have a few points less than they expected, but that is not something we should pay attention to," said the Friuli boss.

"As always, the support from our strikers will be very important, as they can keep the pressure on the Giallorossi in possession and speed up the pace.

"Overall, the team has to play the way it knows how. Roma can create horrible problems if we don't take the initiative, just as Lecce did last week."
