Positive vibes after the display at the Sardegna Arena. Four goals scored and it could have been eight. Yet, conceded three, and never sure of secured three points.
Roma went on to play some great aggressive football in the first 20 mins. Sparkling and unlucky not to score thanks to a superb Robin Olsen in the Cagliari goal. Then, ironically Cagliari taking the lead on their first approach. A super goal by Joao Pedro. Typical Roma.
However, this time it didn’t flop. Fonseca’s men went on to regain the lead with some great moves by Mkhitaryan finished off twice by Kalinic. Yes. Him. The same one who did not feature before even with Roma down in desperate need to score.
Fonseca ignored him every time. This time starts in place of tired Dzeko. Weird. Not a minute on the pitch when we needed him, nowleading the attack from the start. Scoring twicw with some passing. Michi is the star on the night with Nic just behind. Well done to show such committment after all.
Overall, Roma played well annd showed some resilience at last. Only thing, the usual, unnecessary sleeping time, allowing Cagliari to get back in twice, when the match was really over. Simply cannot. Work still to be done there. Else, Serie A calendars are in chaos for the Corona virus, thanks to a sloppy Italian FA, a governing body in the hands of the top teams who rule the roost for their own interest alone. Forget about your health. Forza Roma.
