Roma to give everything to beat Napoli

Roma midfielder Seydou Keita reveals the squad is willing to give everything they have in order to beat Napoli in their Serie A clash at Stadio Olympico on Monday.

The Giallorossi are currently third in the league standings, five points behind Napoli, and Keita is confident they can reel their opponents in.

"We have to try to win for Roma," he told Sky Sport Italia. "It's a big match and we need to do everything we can to get the win, but it won't be easy because Napoli are a great side."

Roma are unbeaten in their last five games but two of the results, draws against both Bologna and Atalanta, were disappointing before they got back to winning ways against Torino in midweek.

"With all due respect, when a team like Roma plays against those sides we have to be winning, given that we're aiming for second or third place. If we draw it means something's not gone right," he added.

"It was a tough match against Torino – tactically they're very good – but in the end we picked up three important points in the race for Champions League football."

If Roma are able to overcome Napoli, and Juventus pick up at least a point against Fiorentina on Sunday, it will guarantee the Bianconeri are crowned Serie A champions for the fifth consecutive season.
