On Saturday evening, Roma and Verona played in a torrential rain, the first not to lose ground to Juventus, Napoli, Inter and Lazio, the second to try to take at least one point, but it was always clear that Roma was stronger than Verona and the outcome was never in question.
First, it is important to highlight that, after the double injury, Alessandro Florenzi is back. And how much we missed him… The right-winger runs, dribbles, shots and his assist for Dzeko is perfect to score Roma’s second goal. Moreover, this match has confirmed his excellent physical condition.
On the other wing, Kolarov is always focused on the match, leads his teammates to counter-attack, has a chance to score from a free kick and with his corners creates good opportunities to score.
The opposing players never involve the two centre backs, Manolas and Fazio, and the goalkeeper, Alisson.
However, the real surprise is Lorenzo Pellegrini. At the beginning, he plays like Strootman, but then changes the role with Cengiz Under and both have been a thorn in the opposing team’s side. Nainggolan scores the first goal of the match; in fact, this time he often participates in the offensive phase, above all during the first half.
De Rossi makes an excellent performance; the only negative point is the yellow card during the last minutes that it was avoidable.
In the midfield, Under plays near Dzeko but he shows his incredible skills when he moves to the wing; in fact, in the first half, he hits also the post with a great shot. In addition, El Shaarawy has played a great match, and only the bad luck stops him from scoring a double. Finally, there is Dzeko. What else? He is altruistic, protects the ball and shots as if his life depends on it! Maybe he wastes so many chances to score because of this urge, but it is fine as long as he scores a double every match.
The last positive thing is Di Francesco, because the players follow his indications, although the not so high level of the opposing team.
It is almost impossible to find negative things this time, maybe only the bad weather and the limited number of supporters at the stadium.
