Rudi Garcia: Winning three games in a row sure bumps you up the table


Roma coach Rudi Garcia was delighted after his side registered a very important win in the Serie A.

The Giallorossi moved up to second in the table ahead of today's games with a very convincing 3-1 win over Empoli.

They will face in-form Fiorentina away from home next week.

"I'd like to start by giving credit to Empoli because they caused us all sorts of problems, especially in the first half when they harried us high up the pitch," Garcia said.

"In the first 45 minutes we tried to exploit the space behind their backline but we couldn't make the breakthrough.

"We changed formation after the break and went with 4-4-2 so could have more men in midfield. We were well set out after that and we bossed the game in the second half.

"I'm delighted that we scored from set plays because it's something we could have done better earlier on in the season.

"Pjanic scored a great free kick to open the scoring, then we doubled our lead through De Rossi from a corner. Our aim was to be second in the standings today and we managed to do that.

"Winning three games in a row sure bumps you up the table. Now we can sit back and see what the others do.

"It's a shame we conceded that goal because it made me rethink the third substitution I wanted to make. It's good that we're scoring lots but we always concede at least one. I hope we can change that starting on Tuesday."
