thumbnail Hello,

Roma will have it tough at the Sant'Elia, assures Cagliari coach Pierpaolo Bisoli.

Cagliari coach Pierpaolo Bisoli has warned Roma to expect a difficult game when the two teams clash on Saturday.

The Rossoblu earned a valuable point away to Palermo in week one, and in the emphasis to do well in their first home game of the season is clear.

"We have prepared well for this one. We know we are playing a strong team, but despite this, we are playing to get a result," Bisoli told the press.

"We will not adopt a waiting game tactic against them, but we will try to impose ourselves playing our game. Roma have important players in their team, and we must not afford them space.

"We can say that the chances are 50.5 percent for us and 49.5 percent for Roma, because we'll have the fans on our side."

He touched on specific members of the Giallorossi squad, praising captain Francesco Totti.

Totti is Totti, a symbol of Italian football," continued the ex-Cesena boss.

"[Marco] Borriello reminds me of Kennet Andersson, a very good player who works hard for his team-mates. [Claudio Ranieri] is a good coach and a great gentleman, who has good things to say about everyone."

The message was clear from Bisoli, who described the Lupi as a title favourite.

"The usual four: Inter, Roma, Milan and Juventus. But my mind is on Cagliari and we have to reach survival as soon as possible," he concluded.
