Fate. Destiny. Before even entering the field. Ibanez and Mancini not feeling well, Dzeko just back after Covid, Smalling out, with Veretout leaving the field too early. Miki doesn’t get one right, Pedro likewise, Spina preaching alone into the desert. Pellegrini is the shadow of himself, Mirante having a bad day, JJ and Karsdorp not good enough, with Cristante the handyman. That’s it. Total blackout.
It’s Maradona’s day. Insigne-goal display the N0.10 shirt was not even quoted by the bookies. In short, it was a disaster but at least a proper goodbye to the King. The Europa League will be almost a formality and then here comes Sassuolo on Sunday. It’s going to be a tough game. But we need to rise quickly to resume operations. And hope. Chin up. Forza Roma.
