Reflections and indigestions: Victory vanished with only 5 min from the end, 3 points gone, players with cramps, ended up defending with backline of 5 ; Peres just irritating and a super Alisson. This sums up Roma’s latest disappointment.
Better than Inter in the first half, good runs and pressing, but without creating much, until finds the advantage with El Sharaawy on the break. Second half that finds Roma completely unprepared, a sudden physical decline, no longer pressing the opposition, so the whole team disappears. El Sharaawy and Gerson with cramps and unsuitable field replacements.
Di Francesco opts to play with 5 defenders hoping to resist Inter’s attacking force, Roma saved many times thanks to Alisson, but then the Nerazzurri take advantage and sneak the equalizer with Vecino with afree header in the penalty area in the final minutes. Result 1-1. So it ends up at the San Siro, a useless draw, a bad result for two teams in deep crisis.
Now double challenge between Sampdoria-Roma, on Wednesday and Sunday, with the transfer market window looming, and Dzeko and Emerson very close to join Chelsea. But it is not over yet. Even with these possible departures, Roma will have to take on someone. Objective must be to exploit Schick as a striker, Defrel to be his replacement in the middle or on the right flank, sign the likes of Darmian to tampon the right / left band, send away Peres if possible, and try to start again.
Finishing in forth spot is the new objective, with Inter and Lazio direct competitors. We hope for a brighter future… Always and in any case. Forza Roma!
