Qarabag-Roma 1-2: 30 minutes and then the dark

Roma suffers but collects three vital points in the away Champions League match against Qarabag.

After a very convincing beginning of the game in which the giallorossi scored two goals with Manolas and Dzeko, Gonalons’ silly mistake changed the course of the match. From that moment, the Azerbaijan team got confident and its supporters pushed their idols beyond their tactical and technical limits.

Di Francesco’s guys lowered the pace of the game and weren’t unable to create dangerous occasions anymore. The second-half was even worse. Roma needed a bit of rest to rearrange its ideas and close the game, instead, the Lupi failed the approach to the second 45 minutes.

Qarabag pushed hard to find the equalizer and make history but the giallorossi wearily managed to collect the three points.

Gonalons’ very weak performance is not worse than that of his teammates who lacked competitive nastiness throughout the match.

Roma’s performances in the European competitions are, once more, disappointing.
