The Italian believes the Giallorossi must seize their last opportunity to make something of their season in Sunday's cup finalAurelio Andreazzoli has revealed his determination to guide Roma to a record 10th Coppa Italia success, as they prepare to take on arch-rivals Lazio.
Europa League qualification is up for grabs for Sunday's winner, with the Giallorossi finishing sixth and Vladimir Petkovic's men seventh at the end of the Serie A season.
"There is a double victory up for grabs, both the cup victory and qualification to the Europa League next term," Andreazzoli told reporters. "The derby always has special significance.
"I know I have the opportunity to enter Roma's history books, as not everyone has won their club a 10th Coppa Italia title before. Winning would be important, but I do not feel enslaved to a result.
And after a sixth-placed finish in the league, Andreazzoli insists his men are not feeling any nerves.
"If we win it, we would be talking about a glamorous season, but if we lose, we cannot call this season a failure," he continued.
"Lazio is our opponent and will compete, so the prospects of defeat are always open. Sport is like that. Despite that, I have not seen any tension from the players, who the club must be grateful to for all they have done.
"This is a high-profile match and we can achieve two objectives of our season with one stroke. A victory tomorrow would be a fantastic one."
Andreazzoli's bid to become permanent Roma boss will be given a considerable boost with victory, as rumours continue to link the club with a move for AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri.
