Roma coach Rudi Garcia says Tuesday's Champions League match against Bate Borisov is a must-win for his team if they are to make it through the group stage of the competition.
The Giallorossi produced a very convincing performance in the Serie A against Carpi on Saturday and will be eager to produce more of the same against Aleksandr Yermakovich's men.
"After the Barcelona match I said this match and the double 'play-off' with Leverkusen would be crucial and I haven't changed my mind," Garcia told reporters.
"We know how it works in these mini-leagues in Europe: Every time you win you take a step towards qualification and every time you lose your chances diminish.
"Tomorrow is a different game. We're playing away from home against a team that's already played two thirds of their league season so we'll have to be on our toes no matter what side they put out tomorrow.
"They're [Bate are] used to playing in the Champions League and they've almost got the title wrapped up in their domestic league so they can focus on this competition.
"I don't know the stadium we'll be playing at tomorrow because when I came here with Lille we played in Minsk. It looks like a top-quality arena and virtually all the fans will be cheering them on.
"That will make little difference to us and the fact we're missing several players doesn't change the ambition we have to qualify from the group. You have to give 100% in every match – like we did against Barcelona – if you want to come away with a positive result."
