The Roma leaves the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino with the 3 points and breathes a huge sigh of relief. Thanks to the net 3-0 inflicted on the grenade, the Giallorossi qualify arithmetically for the next one Europa League. José Mourinho’s team will therefore be able to face the Conference League final with a clearer mind.
To decide the advance of the 38th day of A league they think about it Tammy Abrahamauthor of a brace, and Lorenzo Pellegrini. It is the English striker who uncorked the match by taking advantage of Zima’s slip into the area and cynically beating Berisha. After less than 10 ‘the Giallorossi nine is repeated: first he lets himself be landed by the opposing goalkeeper by intercepting Rodriguez’s unfortunate back pass; after which he realizes the penalty himself. The final 0-3 goal still comes from eleven meters: this time Pellegrini goes from the spot who puts it in and puts an end to the game that mathematically brings Roma to the Europa League.
The race begins in the sign of balance. In fact, Roma struggled to impose their own pace on a Turin that plays with a clear mind. In particular, the Giallorossi are unable to launch the fifths (Spinazzola and Zalewski) on the flanks, given the good pressing of the grenades.
Mourinho’s men have to thank the rear guard of Toro, the negative protagonist of three blunders. The first is Zima’s slip leading to Abraham’s goal. After a few minutes comes the wrong passage of Rodriguez towards Berisha who actually gives the penalty to the Giallorossi. Finally, in the second half the newly entered Buongiorno is stained with a sin of ingenuity and is too easily blown up by Zaniolo, causing the second penalty in favor of Roma.
The three goals scored by Roma are not exciting from a tactical point of view; consequently, given the absence of noteworthy plays, the most important moment of the match arrives at 68 ‘, when Ivan Juric calls back to the bench Andrea Belotti. The captain leaves the field to the applause of the grenade public who tries in every way to convince him to sign the contract renewal. What will the Rooster do at the end of the season?
Rui Patricio 6.5, Mancini 6, Kumbulla 6, Ibanez 6.5, Spinazzola 6 (82 ‘Vina sv), Veretout 6.5, Oliveira 6 (58’ Cristante 6), Zalewski 6.5 (58 ‘Karsdorp 6), Pellegrini 7 (82’ El Shaarawy sv), Shomurodov 6.5 (76 ‘Zaniolo 6.5), Abraham 7.5.
Abraham 7.5 – The former Chelsea striker scores a brace and drags the Giallorossi towards the Europa League. He shows great intuition when he realizes the indecisions of Zima and Rodriguez and immediately puts the race downhill;
Shomurodov 6.5 – He supports Abraham by running around him and going to the English striker’s spikes. His physicality bothers the grenade rearguard;
Zalewski 6.5 – He still needs to get used to playing on his band. He pushes a little, but when he does it always stings dangerously;
Spinazzola 6 – Every now and then he tries some tearing of his, but the physical condition is not the best. However, we are happy to see him on the pitch for most of the match;
Mancini 6 – He is not cautioned and it is news.
