Frustration and disappointment. Roma failed to get the three points at the Vigorito against ten men Benevento. Barely created any chances, not even in the 30 minutes with the extra man.
Over 60% ball possession but hardly any shots recorded. Unable to build a decent chance against a solid backline organised by Pippo Inzaghi’s men. Unable to breakthrough despite bringin on Dzeko, Pedro and El Sharaawy to help Borja Mayoral upfront. In the end, too much congestion and too much confusion.
The last few minutes saw Benevento trying to sneak it on the counter, but most of all Roma went very close to score, only denied by a goal line clearance. And of course, here’s the penalty awarded that could change the match. Minute 95. Last few seconds. Var check. Offside spotted.
Simply wasn’t meant to be. Benevento deserved the point for fighting hard with 10 men. Roma just didn’t do enough. A wasted opportunity to close the gap with Milan. Now, the rossoneri are next. Pity. Before that, Europa League second leg. Same for Milan, who got thrashed by Inter in the milanese derby, now trailing behind the nerazzurri. So, the big clash on Sunday. Another opportunity. Let’s catch it this time. Daje Roma.
