Can a tactical change redefine the balance of a team? The answer is yes. Roma changed gear in the last four matches collecting four victories.
The Roma fans were desperately blaming the coach, president Pallotta and sporting director Monchi for the terrible start of the 2018-19 campaign. The giallorossi had suffered three defeats against AC Milan, Real Madrid, and Bologna, collecting three points only against Torino in the first Serie A match of the season.
Two weeks after, the situation of the Lupi looks so much better and the fans are hoping to replicate the magnificent 2017-18 campaign when Di Francesco brought his men to the Champions League semifinals.
In the last period, the Italian coach faced the senators of his group asking them for suggestions on what to do to highlight their skills on the field. Apparently, the 4-2-3-1 has been the answer. Roma changed gear in the last two weeks defeating Frosinone, Lazio, Viktoria Plzen, and Empoli. A glorious streak of victories for the best team of the Italian capital.
In the last 4 matches, the giallorossi scored 14 goals conceding only one moment of glory to their opponents. The Swedish goalkeeper Robin Olsen made 3 clean sheets and demonstrated his qualities and reliability.
Roma’s mysterious mutation is unbelievable. Di Francesco’s guys collected 12 points in two weeks reducing the gap with those teams at the top of the Serie A standings. Their international campaign looks brighter as well. After having suffered a bloody 3-0 at Bernabeu against Real Madrid, the Lupi punished 5-0 Viktoria Plzen and jumped to the second position of the Group G.
