Daniele De Rossi warns players ‘have to earn their place at Roma in every game’ and is already making plans for next season during the match with Genoa.

It kicks off at the Stadio Olimpico at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT).

You can follow all the build-up and action as it happens from today’s five Serie A games on the LIVEBLOG.

“I would like to see everything different to how we played against Atalanta. The lads pushed hard in training and I am sure they will be in the right condition this evening,” De Rossi told DAZN.

Romelu Lukaku looked very isolated without Paulo Dybala, so how must Tommaso Baldanzi and Lorenzo Pellegrini try to work with the Belgian?

“They need to support him, while Lukaku has to hold the ball up, giving the others time to get close to him for support.”

De Rossi looking to Roma future

Lazio were held to a 1-1 draw by Inter this evening, so a victory here would give the Giallorossi a huge boost in locking down sixth place going into the final round of the campaign.

As things stand, that is worth a spot in the Europa League, but could still be valid for the Champions League if Atalanta beat Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday and also finish fifth in Serie A.

Are some of the players trying to prove they deserve to be at Roma next season?

“You have to earn your place at Roma in every game, it is about professionalism and dignity. We need hunger next season and I am keeping an eye on everything, so we’ll evaluate it all. The future begins in this game.”
