Easier than expected. Roma beat Istanbul and even President Erdogan. A game never in discussion, Roma in full control with the Turks not even making a shot on goal. Are they poor or it us too good? a little both, I would say. Three goals in the first half that put the result in the safe, second half fairly relaxed, keeping the turks at bay. A round of applause goes to Pellegrini, hit by a coin but not making a scene. Carry on and play.
All is well, as Fonseca says, a good performance in the land of Under and Cetin, especially the good plays of Pellegrini, the verve of Kluivert, Veretout the plunger, and a sharp Dzeko. Diawara has touched many balls but still misses too many passes, even trivial ones, he has to pay more attention, speed up and verticalize more. Thank goodness that some players like Mkytaryan and Kalinic are back from injury and are available again for the league.
In short, a beautiful victory. Now job is nearly done, the turn is one step away despite the referees. At home with the Wolfsbuger a draw will suffice, but even losing we could pass the round, presumably together with Gladbach, already victorious in Austria. But back to the championship, we expect a tricky trip to Verona against the Gialloblù. Let’s take the three points. If Roma does Roma, there is no tripe for cats! Meaning, we can beat anyone. Daje.
