There is no match with Juve without controversy. And almost always when there is a defeat in the way, which is not unusual when you go to play in Turin. The statements of some players after the game went under scrutiny, for some with a tone a little too positive for an ‘honorable’ defeat. It remains to be seen if this is a positive attitude or not, if being satisfied with losing for having played a decent game is the right mentality to cheer up.
Luciano Spalletti for example did not think so, raging against everyone after the honorable defeat in Madrid against Real. In short, Roma made 12 shots and Juve only 3, good ball possession but without being able to sting, thanks to an almost impenetrable defense. Hardly any shot on target. The jaunty Juve does the opposite and wins with minimal effort. If with the big teams Roma disappeared at the first difficulty, in Turin imposed the game play, no doubt, but the fact remains that Pirlo this time seems to have waited on purpose, to hit on the counter. Or was it our merit? Half empty or half full glass? Great discussion topic.
The fact is that while many appreciated the desire of the team on the pitch, others a bit less with the declarations later, a bit triumphalistic after yet another defeat. Yet, those who insult on social media are to be condemned. Always. Now we start again with our feet on the ground, fourth place is our goal. Forza Roma.
