Too disappointing. We are all saddened by how things went. But clearly the injuries in the first twenty minutes, including the goalkeeper and two and among the best players, really cut our legs. Then, having no more changes to make, we had to play for the rest of the game with the same men.
We had already made a miracle to be ahead by two goals in the first half. There were the conditions to believe but then the team deflated because it was no longer able to keep up. Out of breath, legs and head. Clearly then Manchester took advantage. Maybe you had to be more careful, defend and throw balls in the stands instead we continued to play as before, making a big mistake, and we were too exposed to their lethal counterattack. Big regret.
In the end, the result in my opinion is also too heavy, because the penalty is really harsh but that’s not exactly what made the difference in the end. Even if there is an undoubted technical gap, however, we could have gone home with a different result. At the end of the first half we all believed a bit that Roma could work a miracle. Unfortunately we have collapsed.
The fact of not being able to make changes in the end penalized us extremely and here the result is now compromised. It was important to keep hopes alive but I fear it will now be a formality for the British. History repeats itself. From that magical evening with Barcelona. Very difficult to overturn it. But woe to not try. Anyway, always forza Roma.
