Corentin Tolisso: ‘Juventus are a level above Roma’

March 15, 2017

Summer transfer target Corentin Tolisso believes Juventus are on another level to Europa League opponents AS Roma.

Speaking ahead of Thursday’s clash at the Stadio Olimpico, the French midfielder turned his attention to Serie A and the reports of a possible deal with the Bianconeri.

“An agreement with Juventus? I don’t want to talk about it, the reality is right now I’m at Lyon and I have a contract until 2020,” the Frenchman told Le Progres.

“Without denigrating Roma, Juve are top of Serie A so I think they’re a level above. But we were able to cause problems for both teams at home thanks to excellent second halves.

“We have a lot of hope after the great second half played in the first leg. We have to play the same way because if we set ourselves up to defend we could have problems. The Romans live for football and Roma want to retrieve something from the match.

“On an offensive level our potential is considerable, we have excellent players. We have to play as we know how, trying to impose our own pace on the game. We’re aiming for the final.”
