The giallorossi dominated the match at Stadio Olimpico in Rome. Di Francesco’s men led the game since the beginning devastating Viktoria Plzen.
Roma needed to collect three important points to get back on track in the GROUP G and they did it by demolishing the Czechs without mercy. Their agonistic upheavals have been wiped out playing a great football on the European stage. Edin Dzeko scored a hattrick today. The Bosnian star brought the ball home after having performed a great match.
Cengiz Under and Justin Kluivert supported the striker demonstrating endurance and technique. The Dutch and the Turk flew on the wings creating a necessary numerical superiority many times and constantly attacking the defensive line.
Roma assaulted the game by winning it without letting Viktoria Plzen breathe. The Czechs have been in danger from beginning to end and unable to create problems for the backline of the giallorossi. Lorenzo Pellegrini has been really dangerous between the lines supported by a statuary Nzonzi who wisely led the operations in midfield.
Roma kept the possession for the entire game (65% vs 35%) shooting on goal 22 times and scoring 5 superb goals in the second match of the 2018-19 Champions League.
