“We have to remember that we are playing in front of our fans tonight,” Smalling told Sky Sport Italia.

“It is by far the most important game we’ve faced recently. We have to win in a packed stadium. There can be no greater motivation than that.”

Bodo/Glimt have faced Roma three times this season between the group stage and quarter-final, losing two of them and drawing the other, conceding 10 goals.

“I am not worried, because all that matters is tonight’s game. We are only a goal down and the most important thing is to win so we can qualify in front of our fans.

“We’ve been playing well in recent months and can do it.”
