Three points for the giallorossi after a tough challenge against D’Aversa’s side. Parma-Roma ends 0-2 and the Lupi showed a remarkable improvement from all points of view today.
Three wins in the last four Serie A matches for Roma. Di Francesco passes the holiday period unscathed after a long period of criticisms. Although his side has not yet reached the Champions League spots, the giallorossi are only two points behind Lazio that is currently holding the fourth position of the Serie A standings.
Roma played a great match today at the Stadio Tardini. Although the Lupi struggled to find the right spaces in the first half, they dominated the second part of the game hitting their opponents without mercy.
- Ball possession: 37% – 63%
- Total shots: 6 – 23
- Passes: 311 – 513
But Di Francesco needs a little more consistency from his players. The offensive triptych is extremely talented but discontinuous and imprecise.
- Shots on target: 2 – 5
- Shots off target: 1 – 12
- Shots inside box: 2 – 13
- Shots outside box: 4 – 10
- Goalkeeper saves: 3 – 2
Roma can celebrate their alleged rebirth at this end of the year but their 2019 must restart on a positive emotional wave. The Lupi need to fill the gap with their city rivals and Milan in order to get access to the Champions League edition 2019-2020.
