Roma come out with the three points despite having played a strange match, with the ball left to the opponent, almost like playing away. This against a Verona that proves to be a tough team, at fast pace that at times has put the midfield and the Giallorossi defense in serious difficulty. Verona appears to be a kind of sub-version of Atalanta together with the surprising Sassuolo.
Having said that, in the end Roma are the team that has had the most chances to score. Two sensational goals failed by Edin Dzeko and other missed opportunities. A rather strange game as it had started because Roma was struggling to build game, with Diawara in the middle outside the frame, Pellegrini in dim light, with only Veretout chasing for everyone. In short, only long balls for Michi and Dzeko in front. Then a little luck as well, given the penalty awarded in our favour for a very dubious foul, immediately after another situation, also not evaluated by VAR for Verona, which could change the game against us. In short, we are happy to take the final result and the three points, but Roma’s performance is definitely up for revision.
Edin Dzekom. With the captain’s armband he scored a nice header and missed two sensational ones that could cost us dearly as he attacked Verona in search of the equaliser. Edin is not new to fed up attitudes when certain things don’t turn out the right way. Certainly it will be related to a field situation when, for example, he got angry with some teammates, and therefore probably has nothing to do with the fact that the club perhaps wants to sell him also this year or that in any case something is wrong with him. If Edin is sold this year to Inter or another team it will be mainly for financial reasons, a highly paid player who is almost 34 years old but eho continues to make a difference.
Nicolò Zaniolo. Surely Mr. Fonseca is right to take it back because it has been seen that on the pitch it didn’t go well, but doing it publicly doesn’t make sense, unless the strategy behind it is another. And why him, just after a long injury? Many others have made a bad impression. Never be. And watch out for his agent. Who wants to understand understand. Forza Roma.Tagged: Roma-Verona
