Success and reaction of the Giallorossi in the Conference League. Zorya beaten 3-0 thanks to goals from El Shaarawy, Smalling and Abraham
I doubt they weren’t on the outcome, but on Rome, on performance, on the second lines and their growth (or decrease), writes Alessandro Angeloni on The messenger. Will he be able to react immediately after the defeat in the derby and at the same time apply a necessary turnover? This was the question, this was the sense of waiting. Success and reaction. Against an opponent, predictably, not exceptional: Zorya beaten (3-0, goal by El Shaarawy, Smalling and Abraham) and primacy in the group, as scheduled. Mourinho he goes on with his certainties, he is sincere to the end even in this mid-evening in Ukraine. There are the owners, there are valid options and there are those who are not really suitable for him: Villar, Reynolds and Diawara, again a no thanks. Not even in the Conference which, if we don’t want it, is a minor competition, at least in this phase, used by many for turnover or for some experimentation. And this does Mourinho, who is no exception. In place of the Spanish there is the excellent Darboe (at least two assists, one of which winning, and a shot towards the goal), as the right-back the stabilizer Ibanez is preferred and for the Guinean there is Cristante, who begins to stagger with fatigue, once again playing the entire game. Report clarifications on hierarchies and preferences. The attack continues to rotate, however, and the alternation penalizes only Mayoral, while Shomurodov (not very brilliant yesterday), Perez (like the Uzbek) and ElSha take minutes and they are real options, and the same goes for shrinking (who is studying to return as defense leader and in the meantime finds the goal, with a header, from a corner action), Kumbulla (a bit bungler) e Calafiori (his growth will have to be more mental than physical and yesterday it went not bad). Forward with thirteen, fourteen loyal to the maximum, this is the photo of the moment and the near future. Roma risks being in apnea until January and amen. Even in a match like this, Mou leaves out the owners, who relax too much on the bench. And here is that Zaniolo and Abraham taste the field for a good half hour, on the result already unblocked by the Pharaoh’s goal, and the Englishman also has time – in addition to scoring – to take yet another pole. Just with theheavy artillery, Rome finds it winning shot, the one that makes the opponents understand, these opponents, that the time of the game is over: two are enough inside, when half an hour is missing, and here comes the goals of Smalling and Tammy, while for an hour we were gone a little at a trot. A case? Maybe not: the differences are well marked in Mou’s head.
