Ludogorets coach Ante Simundza is optimistic ahead of the decisive match with Roma.

"I don't think I have to change many things from the game we played against them. We have to be more aggressive and not let them take the first balls. We have to win if we want to qualify," he began. "Dominik Yankov is with us, but Ivan Yordanov is sick. We don't need additional motivation. We are in a position to decide our fate. Roma have a great ambition to beat us and give us the consolation prize, but it is not for us. We we will not be satisfied with the third place. We want to continue in the Europa League," continued the Slovenian.

"The game with Lazio 8 years ago is a good memory. Now the opponent is different, but we will try to beat them. We know Dybala is injured, but other of their players are coming back. There is no way they can change anything. You will see some guys who want result and they are eager to get it," concluded Simundza.
