From 0-3 at the table of the first leg (case-Diawara) to the three goals scored in half an hour of the return. Roma makes its rounds around the championship e remains third on the day in which the “big” wins and Lazio returns with arrogance in the Champions area. Victory is important for two reasons: in front was Verona who came from 3-1 to Napoli, former best defense in the league together with Juve, who had never scored three goals all together; waiting di understand how the Dzeko-case will end, also on Sunday in the stands with the newcomers El Shaarawy and Reynolds, the right answers have come again from Borja Mayoral: the assist for the 2-0 of Mkhitaryan and the tap-in for the 3-0 on a shot by Pilgrims (the best in the field but booked, he was warned and will miss Juve-Roma).
Pellegrini had also beaten the corner on which he had climbed Mancini to open the score at 20 ‘. Mayoral has reached 9 goals this season (6 in the league and 3 in the Europa League), beating Dzeko in the domestic competition (8 + 1). The Spaniard earned the starting shirt on the pitch, now it is up to the company to decide whether: 1) to prove the almost impossible sale of Dzeko at the last minute of the market that closes tonight; 2) accelerate the negotiations for a difficult peace with Fonseca; 3) let the time pass and entrust only the coach (“It’s not true that I asked for your apology”) to handle the case.
Fonseca he had said and repeated on the eve that the only speech that interested him was the preparation for the match against a formidable opponent. IS the preparation was excellent. Against Juric’s man scoring, in fact, Roma used the long pass and the change of field more than usual, finding spaces often and willingly in which to sink Mayoral, Mkhitaryan, Pellegrini and the two lateral ones. Verona understood very little, also thanks to Juric’s training choices, for once off-center. The best of the Gialloblu were the newcomers, in the second half, who took advantage of the decline of Roma – a bit physical and a bit mental – to score the goal of the flag with Colley and squeeze the Giallorossi in their penalty area. All too late.
