Roma wins and convinces. With Mayoral and without Dzeko. An important victory that is still worth third place, even if Juve and Napoli have one game in hand. IT was a llively Roma that in the first half suffocated Verona with three goals in 10 minutes, thanks to a great Miki spaired with Borja and with Captain Lorenzo who is living his best moment since wearing this shirt. Too bad for the yellow card, he won’t be available for the Juve match on Saturday.
That said, a test of strength even if the team still loses focus in the second half with wrong passes and defensive mistakes that we must avoid. Smalling’s umpteenth injury is worrying and in Saturday’s big match against the bianconeri Fonseca will have to reinvent the set-up behind them, we’ll see if with Kombulla or Cristante. In the meantime, Pharaoh El Shaarawy has returned home and together with Big Bad Boy Reynolds they will give us a big hand as soon as they are in condition.
And Edin Dzeko is back too, not that he left but simply no buyers were found. Roma would have gladly sent him away, a disciplinary but also a financial issue. He now he remains with us and available, an inevitable truce, for the good of all. And it is also good for Roma, if Edin returns to the field convinced then he still remain a strong player, essential for us. We need to see the emotional reaction of him after the club punishment, as he’s downgraded, given that as of today he is no longer the captain of the team, as pointed out by the new director Pinto. The important thing is that Roma continue to win, we must go forward in serenity without internal conflicts, then we will do the reckoning in June, with everyone, with Dzeko but also with Fonseca. In the end, it’s always the results that count. Starting from Saturday in Turin. Daje Roma.
