Rome, December 12 - Captain Francesco Totti has said he is confident AS Roma are on the right track after they notched their fifth consecutive win by thumping Atalanta 3-0 to reach the quarter-finals of the Italian Cup. The three-time Italian champions endured a tough start under swashbuckling coach Zdenek Zeman, who returned to the club this season 13 years after his first stint with them. But Zeman appears to have fixed his side's fragility in defence in recent outings and they have climbed to fifth in Serie A thanks to a run of impressive wins. "It was a clear victory over Atalanta. Everyone was ready for the match and I feel that the road we've taken is the right one," said former Italy forward Totti, who was part of the Azzurri's 2006 World Cup-winning team. Totti is four goals from equalling former Sweden, AC Milan and Roma great Gunnar Nordahl as second-top scorer in Serie A history after double in Roma's 4-2 win over Fiorentina on Saturday.
