Roma coach Luciano Spalletti delighted with victory over Empoli

Roma coach Luciano Spalletti was satisfied with victory over Empoli.

Edin Dzeko's double proved enough to see off Empoli 2-0, setting a new record with 33 competitive goals in a single season for the club.

It's a result that puts them in a strong position, as tomorrow night Napoli and Juventus go head-to-head.

“I'd say we had a few difficulties, especially in the first half, but in the second we did better and the victory is thoroughly deserved," he told Mediaset Premium.

“First of all we had to do well and win the game. We did half that, as we got the points. At times we pay too much attention to the other results and forget to get our own first.

“Tomorrow there will be strong teams, strong Coaches and solid systems, so we'll see what happens at the final whistle.

“I would've gladly gone to the San Paolo tomorrow, because it's a spectacle and a great game that is good for everyone to watch. I was advised it'd be a problem to attend in person, though."
