Rudi Garcia on the Parma game, Nainggolan and Iturbe


Roma coach Rudi Garcia expects a difficult game on Wednesday against Parma.

The Giallorossi face Roberto Donadoni's team as leaders of the Italian Serie A and the manager says his players will be determined to get all three points from a tricky game away from home.

"We play a Parma team that always does well at home," Garcia said during his press-conference.

"They scored a lot of goals but also conceded a lot, we will approach the game just like any other game, we will go there to win knowing that it's always difficult to win games away from home.

When asked if midfielder Radja Nainggolan will be rested Garcia said: "We were lucky to play every four days and not three so all players are ready to play, after Parma we'll see.

"I always take in consideration how in-form players are and Radja is one of the best, not only on the pitch but also in training."

The coach also gave an update on the fitness level of Juan Manuel Iturbe with the Frenchman saying he will take no unnecessary risks with his striker.

"We have to be careful about using players who are not 100% fit," explained Garcia.

"He's young and eager to make a comeback but he has to be 100% fit. Same goes for Castan, he's a fighter and eager to be back in action but I want them to be 100% fit.

"Manuel is young, he has little or no experience at all with injuries so we will do our best so as not to take any unnecessary risks."
