Giallorossi looking for tenth consecutive victory.
AS Roma boss Rudi Garcia has warned his players not to become complacent against Chievo on Thursday night as they look to extend their winning streak.
The Serie A leaders welcome the bottom-of-the-table side to the Stadio Olimpico looking for a record breaking tenth successive win to start the season.
Despite the absence of the injured pair Francesco Totti and Gervinho at the weekend, coupled with Maicon’s dismissal, a solitary Michael Bradley goal secured all three points at Udinese to continue the run.
However, Garcia has warned that while it is promising to make such an early start, confidence should not turn into arrogance as the club have not won anything yet.
“It is great to have won nine straight games but what I would like is for people to remember us at the end of the season, perhaps with a trophy in our hands,” Garcia said to Roma Channel as reported by Sky Sports.
“We have to focus on Thursday’s game.
“Everyone, even at (Roma’s training ground) Trigoria think that the game against Chievo has already been won.
“However, this game is going to be the most complicated one since the start of the season.”
While most of the headlines this season have been fixated on the likes of Totti and Gervinho, the Giallorossi boast an incredible record in terms of goals scored and conceded.
Having scored 23 goals they have conceded just once in nine games and continue to set the pace in Italy with their organised, structured and flamboyant style of play.
While Totti and the suspended Maicon will miss the clash with Chievo, they are favourites to overcome their latest obstacle and with the fixture list ahead looking kind too it remains to be seen how far they can take their winning streak.
