A historic victory for Roma at the Olimpico Stadium. The giallorossi defeated Chelsea 3-0 after a glorious match with 60,000 fans celebrating on the stands.

This is a pivotal match for Roma and its ambitions in the Champions League. Eusebio Di Francesco magically shaped a team under a tactical and motivational standpoint. The giallorossi were simply perfect today. Undoubtedly, El Shaarawy‘s early goal helped but the overall performance of the Lupi was remarkable.

A superb night for several Roma players such as Florenzi, Juan Jesus, De Rossi, El Shaarawy, and Perotti. The Italian-Egyptian winger made the difference scoring the opener after 40 seconds and doubling the lead before the end of the first half demonstrating his ability and skills in front of the net.

Diego Perotti threw a rocket behind Courtois in the second half allowing the Roma fans to uncork the bottles of champagne.

Chelsea underperformed since the beginning and suffered Roma’s tactical hegemony on the field. Antonio Conte needs to work a lot to re-establish that positive alchemy that last year led the Blues to the Premier League victory.

Di Francesco, instead, should ride the wave going ahead pushing his guys to do their best because nowadays the Lupi are hungry for glory!
