The giallorossi leave the Artemio Franchi with a deserved point after having played a very good first half.
Roma played a good match in Florence on Saturday evening. Di Francesco’s men outperformed the Viola in the first half dominating the possession and outshooting Fiorentina 11 vs 6. But football is an infamous sport and if you do not score goals you cannot win. Dzeko & Co. made 19 shots on goal but only 4 of them have been on target.
The Lupi managed the possession of the ball properly in the first 45 minutes (63% vs 37%). A couple of big chances created by the Lupi have almost rejoiced their fans. A very aggressive Roma, as Di Francesco had asked in the press conference ahead of Fiorentina-Roma.
Roma made 13 shots from inside the box today. But most of them have been blocked by the Viola defenders (7). Aggression, that is the key factor to perform well at home and on the road. Di Francesco played Zaniolo as trequartista. The youngster did not disappoint his coach and the fans.
