"It's not easy to win here, we managed to do it with an excellent performance," Italiano told DAZN.

In the midweek round, they will face Scudetto winners Inter on Tuesday.

"We work to have more scoring opportunities than the opposition, and are happy to be keeping the chances at the other end relatively few and far between.

"We must continue like this, as we cannot lose the focus and dedication we've had so far. I am happy for Ricky, as he's been going close to a goal for a few games now."
