Is this for real? Abyss is the name of another italian referee who thinks VAR should apply whenever fancy. Well, Roma were robbed once again of two clear penalties, but same as in Bologna, manages to get past all referees to claim the 3 points. All in spite of utter incompetence. We hope.
Nevermind of Kolarov missing a penalty, Roma looked focused, only not so cynical. Roma created 8 goal opportunities, in the end scoring only one. Edin Dzeko on the scoresheet again. But it is the amount of work involved, the creation of chances not converted. Zaniolo, Kluivert, Dzeko, Mkhitarian, Kolarov. All had opportunities. But at least, 3 points in the bag.
If Atalanta was a tough test, then Bologna and Lecce both deserve a mention. But Atalanta has shown that Europe is not the same. They are a good team in Italy. But Europe is another thing. Next Wolfsberger. With Pellegrini and Mkhitarian now out injured for weeks, and Under still out, then the reserve team will do. Give ‘em a chance. Then Cagliari, regulars only!Tagged: AS Roma, edin dzeko, lecce-roma, Serie A
