Roma coach Luciano Spalletti: Real Madrid can wait

Roma Coach Luciano Spalletti insists it's too soon to think about Champions League opponents Real Madrid.

Roma meet Carpi this weekend.

“Our thoughts are on this game here," Spalletti insisted.

“We have some players back, and we'll make our choices. Tomorrow is the priority, I'll make my choices based on the game tomorrow.

“If you think beyond the next game it'll all go wrong. Juve have won 14 games in a row, Napoli 10. If we want to compete we need to put together a streak of our own.

“If we think about any game other than tomorrow, then we haven't understood anything. Tomorrow is crucial.

“We want to keep up with the great teams."
