The debut in the Europa League starts well. Victory that immediately puts Roma ahead in the standings along with the Wolfsburger revelation, given that even the Austrians scored four at home in Borussia.
Let’s also say that a lucky own goal unlocks a game that was put on a dead end, thanks to a performance that wasn’t up to par for the first half hour. Despite the obvious technical inadequacy, the visiting team had shown more desire, looking more forward. Roma plays with the the subs and risks something with the usual smears behind, with Fazio and Jesus still slow and clumsy, but also with Diawara too cumbersome and estranged to the game.
After the goal the team finally starts to play, more filter in the middle and several moves forward. It is another Roma team. More careful in defense, Diawara more alive in the game to sort out balls. Pastore did well with some good passes. He’s skilful but cannot play at this pace. Above all a great Zaniolo, all technical and power, a fury on the right flank, author of a great performance with goals and several valuable assists. Of another planet. Positive notes also from Kluivert and the usual Dzeko, once again on the scoresheet.
The important thing was to start well in this competition. Fonseca made himself heard at the end of the first half. You have to get used to always playing with the same intensity. The interpreters change but the end product must be the same. Next. A surprising Bologna team, our the first match away from the Olimpico. We don’t get too excited but we believe. Let’s go there to win, we must lay down our law and get the 3 points. It is necessary to give a strong signal. Forward we go. Daje Roma!
