Roma coming back to Cagliari is a pleasant counter-trend. Yes, because in Sardinia we have seen all sorts in recent years, always in a negative sense. Three very important points not only for the purposes of the standings, victory for morale and self-esteem in view of the match against Milan.
It must be said that it was not a good first half, rather slow, cumbersome and predictable, at least from the midfield up, especially with Miki still off and Veretout running in circles. The game almost always passes from the outside and few balls arrive playable for Tammy. And then Zaniolo, is growing rapidly but still seems to be caged, put to one side, out of sight.
It is clear that he is looking for an open field, if put in condition it can become devastating. In defense well, with R. Patricio demonstrating that he knows how to do his job, even if he can do nothing about the blunder of Viña. And who knows what about Pavoletti’s failure to double, which slipped only face to face. But Roma returns to the field in the second half with another attitude, creates chances from the goal, Ibañez takes the deserved draw and Pellegrini makes you the masterpiece on a free kick.
And that’s how we get the three points home. In addition Mourinho still amazes with the young spring Felix Afena on the field instead of Perez, Shomurodov or Zalewsky. Good approach of the Ghanaian. Yet another found of the Special One. Another reinforcement for the attack. Here, despite everything, Roma are now fourth above Juve, Atalanta and Lazio, only two points below Inter. Napoli and Milan go head to head.
But if there are 4/5 more equipped and tested teams, for now we are there to have our say, despite the short blanket. In the eleven we play it, as long as there is gasoline. January will come. Now head to Milan, a team as fearful as it is fortunate, with Napoli certainly very good so far but the episodes on the pitch have all turned in their favor even when they did not deserve it. Waiting for our turn of grace. Daje Roma.
