In English: In & Out Roma VS Cagliari: 20 times Edin!
Roma beats Cagliari 1-0 during the match played on Sunday evening. So, it did not lose out to first-placed Juventus and Napoli is still three point behind it. (Alessandro Tagliaboschi translated by Chiara Trinci)

Roma’s thirteenth consecutive win means that it has matched a record set in 1930 when it played at Campo Testaccio for home games. The importance of these three points was directly related to the difficulty of the match, because the Sardinian team played with determination, organization and will to win. Instead, Spalletti’s team entered the field to take control of the match, obsessed with winning at any cost, just like the mister said during the press conference. In the first half Roma had many opportunities to score but without success. Fortunately, we have Edin Dzeko.
This is his fourteenth goal in championship (the twentieth in this season), so now, anyone who was waiting to criticize him after a bad day should remain silent.
Edin is always more important for this team that cannot play without its “gentle giant”. Even he did not score another goal because of the bar, this time he was the man of the match.
After every match, it seems inconceivable to think a defense without the Federico "Commander" Fazio. The Argentine centre back made a perfect match in every way, he also fixed the mistakes of his teammates, including Manolas’ ones who was not at his best. He is the best arrival of the last summer transfer market. Extraordinaire.
The other players did not play at their best, maybe because of the effects of Coppa Italia match played on Wednesday against Sampdoria. Even this time, it was fundamental keeping a clean sheet and Szczęsny did not make a save for all the match. The only sour point is Bruno Peres. The Brazilian wingback is a poor imitation of the player who has been appreciated by Torino’s fans. He made a lot of mistakes, seemed confused and out of place and did not represent a problem for Cagliari defenders. We are waiting for him, because this cannot be the real Peres.
Here’s the best part. The next matches will be at Stadio Marassi against Sampdoria again and then a "big match" at Stadio Olimpico against Fiorentina. It will be an important crossroads of this season and Roma must play with concentration, hunger and will to keep winning. Make us dream. FORZA ROMA!
