Robin Olsen, 3.9 Saves per Game to Conquer Roma

The Swedish goalkeeper is a certainty for the Lupi. Olsen converts the skeptics into fans.

In summer 2018, the Roma sporting director Monchi traded Alisson out triggering a sort of dialectical revolt in the Italian capital. The Brazilian had amazed everyone in the previous season quickly becoming one of the top goalkeepers in the world. When Liverpool made a €65 million offer, the Spaniard gently accepted it.

Although it was not easy to replace the Brazilian player, Monchi redirected his attention on Robin Olsen, an experienced keeper who played the World Cup in Russia 2018.

The Swedish player joined Di Francesco‘s group in August amid the disappointment of the Roma fans. But after a period of adaptation, Robin Olsen is now converting the skeptics into fans.

In the last 5 Serie A games, he got an overall rating of 6.98. The Sweden international has also confirmed his ability,  3.3 saves per game in the Italian championship.

Although Roma have suffered a bloody defeat against Real Madrid in the first Champions League match of the 2018-19 edition, Olsen had saved the Lupi from a historic debacle.

In the home match against Viktoria Plzen, Robin Olsen has confirmed his ability getting a 7.1 rating in the 5-0 win at the Stadio Olimpico.

In light of that, Robin Olsen has collected an average of 3.9 saves per game at Roma. The Swedish giant is conquering the eternal city.
