Roma buried minnow Benevento without much effort. A predictable storyline, given the fact Napoli put 6 past them only 3 days ago. From the wings came most of the chances for Dzeko who easily put the ball in the back of the net, also with some help from the opposition. Benevento literally means “good wind”. Barely a football club that can survive at this kind of level. In four matches they scored one goal while conceding 14, two of which they scored themselves tonight. The good outcome is to bag andother 3 points and build that confidence to keep chase the pack.
Nothing much to say about the match, ordinary stuff. No much effort from a Roma side who featured from the satrt Gonalons, Pellegrini, Cengiz and gave some more minutes to Florenzi. What is more worrying from Serie A match 4 is that Napoli continues to score goals and win games emphatically. On-form Lazio the latest victim on their own ground. Juve beat Fiorentina narrowly and Milan still don’t convince fully, but still grabbing 3 points. Inter are struggling on the pitch, they don’t convince but they are there, until one day the luck might run out.
Roma must believe they can compete. Once the squad will be at full potential with Schick and Karsdorp then we will see the potentials. In the meantime, let’s grab points, it’s our chance to capitalise, but they at home against Udinese first then away to Qarabag in the Champions League. October will a tough month with tough fixtures. Be ready for that. So that’s it for now, always Forza Roma!
