Gian Paolo Montali Still Believes In Roma Title Bid

Lazio will not roll over against Inter…

Roma director Gian Paolo Montali is confident that the Giallorossi are not yet out of the title race despite a costly home defeat to Sampdoria last weekend.

Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Parma, Montali told Il Romanista newspaper: “The dream was not snapped after the match with Samp, it goes on.

“A difficult game awaits us. It’s not true that Parma have no motivations left. We will have to play it with our heads held high, without fear of the result but with great respect towards Parma.”

Roma are two points behind leaders Inter, who pay visit to Lazio on Sunday night amid conspiracy theorists speculating that the relegation-haunted Aquile will throw the game to deny their city rivals the chance to win the Scudetto.

“We count on Lazio’s pride,” said Montali. “They will want to prove that all the suspicions of the past few days were unfounded.

“I’m sure that Lazio will play their match as best they can.”
