Six minutes of injury time and two more of the VAR. A heart-stopping ending, Roma could not unlock the Cagliari defense, a penalty badly wasted by Perotti after the VAR intervention. Then, so much effort but Roma could not create decent chances, a sterile maneuvering, so much confusion, a game plan that did not work.
When it seemed too late here it came, the last gasp of Commander Fazio in full injury time. So muhj joy that quickly disappeared with another VAR intervention. The referee stops the stadium’s enthusiasm. Suspense, like in a movie. “Now they will find a foul, a push, an arm ..” Then the confirmation: goal validated, the stadium jubilant again for the second time, a liberating scream, stuff not really suitable for the faint-hearted..
The danger of another draw dismissed. But Roma did not look good during construction phase, from midfield upwards. Instead, well the defense that does not concede goals, almost never in gtrouble, Cagliari has never even come close to our half. Midfield and attack, not a good display. The Dzeko-Schick pair did not work, Edin is not in shape, Patrik is not ready yet tactically. So much confusion between the twos.
If the three points had not arrived there would be an open trial and a lot of criticism for yet another draw and the team that does not perform as good as up until recently. But the three points have arrived, thank goodness, no controversy then, now we need to stay cool and be patient, continue to support this group that is doing very well. Now head to Torino in the Italian Cup. We must win to go though, winning the Italian Cup must be a real objective. Then we will think about Juventus..Daje and Forza Roma!
