Rudi Garcia: Kevin Strootman will be on the bench tomorrow


Roma coach Rudi Garcia says his players should expect a tough game tomorrow against Torino.

After a second defeat against Bayern Munich the Giallorossi host Giampiero Ventura's side in the Serie A hoping to close the gap on leaders Juventus.

"It will be a difficult game, we know it, but we want to win," Garcia told reporters.

"We are back at home and we are happy to play in front of our fans. We closed this week's Champions League chapter in second place and we now open a new chapter in the league.

"It's always important to win before an international break. This period was particular having played against Bayern Munich twice so tomorrow we will do our best to bring back joy [to our fans]."

Asked to give an update on the fitness level of Kevin Strootman and Maicon, Garcia added: "Kevin [Strootman] will be on the bench tomorrow.

"Maicon is very strong when we're on the offensive but he will not play and I don't focus on who will be missing.

"We have to adapt and also we will take advantage of the next 15-days to have injured players back.

"We cannot always be 100% physically fit, especially when we play every three days.

"It's normal that in November, with so many games played, fatigues comes into play. But I'm happy with the fitness level of the squad and we're convinced we can do well tomorrow.
