Roma Defrauded, Wounded, but not Dead!

Football is a beautiful sport and for some, it is a job, a world that excites us in which there are more or less good professionals. But it is unacceptable that a game that is a true novel expressed on a green ground gets soiled by inadequate management.

Fates and balances of sports performance are changed by blatantly wrong decisions. The referee can do things that are justifiable and others that are unacceptable. The double penalty denied to Roma cannot be accepted at these levels, in the most important international competition for clubs.

Those who judge a match only by evaluating the final result bother me. Football and a sports performance are much more complex than the simple numbers shown after the names of the teams. Football is made of moments, the same moments that yesterday have condemned the Giallorossi at the Camp Nou. Although Roma was facing a football superpower, Di Francesco’s guys had harnessed Valverde‘s men in front of their audience. A well thought out tactical approach that had surprised everyone. A match made with tactical acumen and motivation.

Yesterday, Barcelona practically closed the doors to the Roma qualifying hopes. Although the Giallorossi have shown technical shortcomings, the unfortunate performance of the referee has changed the cards on the table, defusing the dreams of the players of the Italian capital.

Now, all we can do is face the second leg with the necessary determination. With the agonistic fury of wounded but undead Wolves. Roma can still give satisfaction to its fans by avenging the injustices suffered at the Camp Nou.
