The regret for other lost points continues. This time, however, there are no referees involved, no Var and not even our performance. Just a lot of bad luck. A disproportionate number of shots on goal and woodwork hits. True, it was the Venezia just relegated, and with a man down for 60 minutes.
Venezia played with so much determination, respecting the rules with the championship still in progress. Just as opposed to the match played at the Allianz stadium, with Juventus who decided in the second half that it was time to celebrate the farewells of Chiellini and Dybala. Allegri changes half a team to make room for the young players and defend for 45 minutes. Sarri, Tare and Lotito already knew that Lazio would eventually equalize.
An Italian championship where the mess is always there when you least expect it. Or maybe when you expect it too. With Lazio now fifth in the standings, Roma is now still in a precarious situation to finish sixth. We need the victory in Turin against the ‘granata’, and thanks to the slips of Atalanta and Fiorentina, fate is still in our hands. It will be interesting to see if Josè Mourinho will make a moderate or more massive turnover in view of the final.
There is a dilemma. It is the last of the championship, it is important to win it to guarantee Europe next year. But the final for us Romanisti is now more important. Whatever it takes. The team needs to breathe, some players are tired. The tribute of the Olimpico even after the disappointing draw with Venezia denotes an infinite enthusiasm and euphoria. There is a great desire to take this cup home. But there is still a game to play. Let’s hold on, then from Friday evening the Tirana operation starts. All focused. Forza Roma.
