Erik Lamela still believes his Roma side can qualify for the Champions League – despite losing 10 of their 27 League games so far this term.
“Although we have been beaten on too many occasions, we are still very close to third place,” the Argentine told Roma Channel.
“It all depends on us now. We face Udinese next, an important match in terms of our consistency. We have to keep climbing the table.”
The Giallorossi, who have won their last three games under new boss Aurelio Andreazzoli, are seventh in the standings – but just five points adrift of the Champions League zone.
