Through the thumping 4-1 victory over Palermo during the Sunday evening match, Roma silences critics and forgets the terrible Europa League match played on last Thursday. The opposing team is not very challenging to face, but Giallorossi play with intensity and determination in response to a general skepticism caused by the false step against Austria Wien.
After this match we have the best attack in Serie A. Dzeko is the top scorer with 8 goals in 9 matches, Salah and El Shaarawy both score this time and thanks to their goals Roma has the best attack of the league with 23 goals in just 9 matches. There is no doubt that “The Pharaoh” is living his moment of glory. In fact, after his two goals in Europa League, Stephan makes another great performance and scores again. If he keeps playing like this, we’re sure we won’t miss Perotti so much, but the performances of the ex-Milan player have to be constant both during the different tournaments and during a single match. However, I think that the real Stephan is finally coming back.
Now, I have to talk about my personal “man of the match”, Leandro Paredes. The Argentinian playmaker has been the best player of the game thanks to his great percentage of pass success and ball recovering. Therefore, it seems that Roma has finally found an excellent player to support Daniele De Rossi, who makes a great performance too. He scores the second goal with a little help from Posavec, but he deserves it. Keep going, Leo!
Unfortunately, I have to deal also with the other side of the coin, Nainggolan and Juan Jesus. But there is an important difference because whereas Juan Jesus is a problem and an obstacle for his teammates, it’s clear that Radja is not yet at his best.
On Wednesday, Roma will play a difficult match against Sassuolo and it will have to prove to be a great team that deserves the top of the table. FORZA ROMA!
