Roma coach Fonseca: No underestimating Torino

Roma coach Paulo Fonseca is upset facing Torino on Thursday.

Roma go into the game in good form.

“I don't understand why we are the only ones playing on Thursday, less than 72 hours before the following match, while everyone else play today," Fonseca said at a press conference.

Torino sit 19th in the Serie A table with only six points in 11 matches but Fonseca warned his players.

"Torino are a strong team, the table does not show their quality. It will be a difficult game, they are an organized team, we will have to play at our best to win."

Roma won 5-1 away at Bologna last weekend.

“Results bring motivation but we need to have ambition," said Fonseca.

“Every opponent is difficult to face, it's going to be tough to win tomorrow.

“I've seen almost every game of Torino this season, they came close to winning against big clubs, they have quality, they are compact, it will be difficult."
