Bologna defeat Roma 2-0 at Dall’Ara stadium walking on the Roma rubble. Di Francesco without ideas and confused.
Will Roma go ahead with Eusebio Di Francesco? Monchi and Pallotta are facing a dangerous crossroads. Although the sporting director had clarified that he is the man in charge of making this decision, the moment to do something seems to have arrived.
3,000 Roma fans traveled to Bologna today to support their heroes, but their players have betrayed them with a shabby performance.
The giallorossi shot on goal 26 times today, but their conversion rate (0%) testifies an acute confusional state of mind. The Roma backline poorly defended once more. Manolas and Fazio are not a solid pair anymore. Florenzi made several mistakes throughout the match. Di Francesco‘s choice to play Marcano on the left flank has been simply inconceivable.
Roma kept a useless possession of the ball (72%), a team unable to attack and defend properly, a group without ideas. Now, the Roma directors must decide what to do. This team does not have the fighting spirit of its coach.
Roma made 619 passes at Dall’Ara stadium against Filippo Inzaghi‘s side. But the poor quality of their plays made a difference. 505 short passes highlighted a team without ideas that never plays vertically. Di Francesco doesn’t have players able to intercept the ball and put the striker in front of the goalkeeper.
Roma are in ruins. Di Francesco is not the only responsible but his removal might be the best solution at this time.
