Luciano Spalletti: No room for nerves in Roma squad ahead of Porto clash

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Mark Donaldson predict which of the top clubs will join the group stage in the Champions League.

But with a spot on the group stage in the balance at the Stadio Olimpico, Spalletti urged his team to go on the attack.
