Rudi Garcia on the Cagliari game and injuries to Astori and Iturbe


Roma coach Rudi Garcia says his players are fully focused on tomorrow's away game against Cagliari.

The Giallorossi eased by CSKA Moscow in mid-week and with Milan and Juventus scheduled to clash tonight, they will be looking to open up a gap at the top of the table.

"We closed the Champions League chapter and from Thursday we started to work on a new one," Garcia told reporters on Saturday.

"Switching from one competition to the other has to be one of the main strengths of this team. We've showed it before and we'll show it again tomorrow.

"I'm not really thinking about the game [Milan vs Juventus].

"A draw is maybe the better result when two direct competitors [for the title] face each other, we just have to take advantage of this and focus on getting all three points."

Roma travel to Sardinia with key players ruled out with injuries but the Frenchman says he is not concerned as there is enough depth in the squad.

"I'm not worried about injuries," added Garcia.

"It's true not long ago we had no injury concerns and now we do, it's a shame for the players and a selection crisis for me.

"The [Davide] Astori and [Juan] Iturbe injuries are not serious. They will soon be back in the squad.

"I wanted depth in the squad so as we could cope with the many fixtures coming up."
