After the crash with Udinese we expected a reaction “Champions” style, given the previous games. In the first half we saw a good Roma despite the many absences and young people in the field. But then when you miss opportunities like that of Under, you inevitably succumb to the greatness of the likes of Real Madrid.
This is how it went. A Real Madrid team with belly full of trophies, in crisis of results for quite a while. Florentino Peres will do a revolution, many will leave the white jersey in the summer. Despite this, Roma has not been able to take advantage of it, giving way to the second half. With De Rossi, Dzeko and Pellegrini in the field probably would have been another game, but it is always easy with hindsight.
Rome has highlighted the usual problems, needless to remember them. Chronic. In the general context continues the ordeal of Fazio in defense, while the self-esteem of Zaniolo grows, once again he demonstrated great personality and technical – tactical maturity. To review Kluivert, Under and above all Patrik Schick, yet again a fish out of water. Kolarov instead took the team in hand, as opposed to N’zonzi, too slow and predictable when it comes to building the action. Olsen confirms that he is an excellent goalkeeper and that Alisson is now only a faded memory.
Despite the defeat, Roma still go through the round in the Champions League thanks to Plzen who won in Moscow. Now the game next. On Sunday Inter’s Spalletti and Nainggolan arrive in Rome. One will receive a pile of whistles, the other only applause. But we are interested only in one thing: the three points, at this point essential for the continuation of the season. Daje.
