Rudi Garcia: Tomorrow's result will not affect our group position


Roma coach Rudi Garcia insists tomorrow's game against Bayern Munich will not affect his side's chances of making it through Group E of the Champions League.

The Giallorossi lie second in the table on four points and they will be eager to cancel the 7-1 home defeat suffered against Pep Guardiola's team when the two teams faced at the Olimpico Stadium.

"Tomorrow we are not favourites to take a positive result," Garcia said.

"1/10th of a chance but if it's one tenth than it means that there is a possibility.

"We will do our best, we will not give up, hopefully this game can cancel the home defeat. But whatever happens, it will not change the fact that we can qualify because our direct competitor is not Bayern, it's CSKA and Manchester City.

"We have to be humble, they are strong and we know it. I have professional players in terms of psychological strength, we understand we are not on the same level of Bayern but this doesn't mean we will go out there like a beaten team.

"We knew this group was going to be tough. Losing against Bayern at home can happen, the problem is how we lost.

"[But] we bounced back well after [the 7-1 defeat], getting a draw against the third in the table [Sampdoria] and the defeat against Napoli is nothing to be ashamed of.
