Three points for AS Roma, but that’s really the only thing that can make its fans happy. The Wolves continue their lacklustre performances after the end of coach Jose Mourinho, with fans complaining about the back line. And in turn, they praise the opposition’s veteran Antonio Candreva.
It was no spectacle, but that’s what AS Roma fans have become accustomed to under Jose Mourinho. The Giallorossi didn’t score in the first half, only waking up to an opponent’s mistake in the form of a handball and converted penalty kick by Paulo Dybala.
The performance gap between attack and midfield
Looking at AS’s line-up, one would have expected a more comfortable win in the long run. However, the Romans’ midfield is not working, even though both Lorenzo Pellegrini and Bryan Cristante are members of the Italian national team’s wider squad. And Edoardo Bove is one of the league’s top talents.
Still, Romelu Lukaku doesn’t get the pass or centre he needs on the tip, which of course has to do with the work of the backs. There is often a gap between the attack and the midfield. So when Lukaku wins a duel with his back to goal, the loose ball is usually easily picked up by the opposition players.
“We are fighting against a team from the bottom of the table, nothing has really changed. The problem is not the coach, but the weak midfield,” wrote a fan with the initials KK in a liked comment below the Serie A YouTube cut. Needless to say, what a dangerous and quality service Lukaku can be.
A Salernitana veteran Antonio Candreva at the Euro?
Despite being clearly last in the table, Salernitana outplayed the Romans on Monday. The main credit for this went to the active Antonio Candreva, who made the visitors’ defence angry from the right side. An uninformed observer would not know that he is already 36 years old.
“Candreva is a top player. Every now and then he does something beautiful, gets a point and is still amazing,” fan Michael alludes to his league record of five goals and four assists. Candreva has been on 47 percent of Salernitana’s league goals.
Candreva has been a key man for Inter Milan for a long time, he has also played for the national team and some want him at 36 for the Euros. That would be a real story! “Please Spaletti, take him to the Euros,” wrote fan David.
