Miracle. Not only do we go to the knockout stages of the Champions League but we win the group surprisingly, at the expense of Chelsea and Atletico, the group of death, at the beginning prohibitive, we were all pessimistic and instead the strength of this group has made the difference, thanks to Eusebio Di Francesco who managed to get into the players’ heads and turn this team into a solid reality.
With the celebrations going into the next round here comes another news at the same time that changes the fate of AS Roma. The new stadium project has been approved and will be built in Tor di Valle racecourse area. In short, a historic double for all the Roma fans. There are all the conditions to grow as a club and finally become a big team in European football.
Last night Roma struggled a lot to beat Qarabag, the team seemed a bit tired, and lacked brilliance and Qarabag defended tighly, so we were all a bit apprehensive, especially after Atletico taking the lead in London against Chelsea, then Perotti eventually scoring the winner with Chelsea drawing consolidated Roma as group winner.
Eusebio Di Francesco deserves all the credit here, brushed away all the initial skepticism, the debates over Szcezsny-Allison, Kolarov, Perotti, El Sharaawy, Fazio, Gerson and so on. Now, head and mind on the league, all united, ready for the next adventure in the Champions League, and look forward to the new Stadio Della Roma! #DublinRomanista
