Roma manager Eusebio Di Francesco has revealed that the Italian side are not going to park the bus against Liverpool at the Anfield.

The Giallorossi will play the Merseysiders tonight in the first-leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final.

Di Francesco is aware that the Reds possess the best-attacking force in the Premier League, but has insisted that they are not going to sit deep.

“We aren’t going to sit deep. They have to do well to force us deep,” Di Francesco told reporters at his pre-match press conference. “The decisive thing will be for us to stay compact.”

Asked about the threat of Mohamed Salah, Di Francesco added: “We can’t focus on a single player.”

“Liverpool are not just Salah, the front-three combine really well together and that’s not an insignificant factor. So we haven’t prepared this game with one player in mind. When preparing the game, of course, we have to be aware of their strongest players, but we’re not targeting a single one.”

Roma reached the semi-final stage after pulling off an extraordinary comeback and knock Barcelona out on away goal (4-4 agg).
