thumbnail Hello,

The Giallorossi lost ground on Serie A leaders Juventus on Monday with their 2-2 draw at AC Milan but their coach left San Siro happy with what he witnessed from his side

Rudi Garcia says that he was happy with the attacking intent displayed by Roma despite slipping to a 2-2 draw with AC Milan on Monday.

The Giallorossi led twice on the night - through Mattia Destro's 13th-minute goal and a second-half Kevin Strootman penalty - but were pegged back on both occasions by Cristian Zapata and Sulley Muntari.

A draw sees Roma fall five points behind leaders Juventus in Serie A but Garcia remains upbeat after the game and pointed to the positive attitude of his players throughout.

He told reporters: "We played to win and that's how I always want to see my team. Scoring two goals at AC Milan is a good thing.

"Normally you win the game with that many chances but there's nothing negative about earning a point in Milan.

"Juve or Napoli? We're looking neither forward nor backward. What matters is playing a great match on Sunday against Catania."

The result leaves Roma in second place on 38 points, three ahead of third-placed Napoli and five adrift of Juventus, but the Giallorossi are still unbeaten in Serie A this season.
