The giallorossi are now in the 7th position of the standings due to a terrifying start of the season and a few tactical issues. Their Serie A goal distribution can tell us something more about Roma’s problems.




Stats are not always right but most of the time numbers can give you a better picture of what is going on. After 14 matches played in the Italian Serie A, we can definitely say that the Lupi have had tactical and mental issues.

The goal distribution provided by SofaScore is developed as follows. Each halftime is divided into three time-slots:

  • 00′ to 15′
  • 15′ to 30′
  • 30′ to 45′
  • 45′ to 60′
  • 60′ to 75′
  • 75′ to 90′

The report highlights the goals scored and conceded in the 14 Serie A matches played so far.

Roma‘s performance is clearly uniform throughout the 90 minutes albeit the giallorossi have experienced repeated drops in tension at crucial moments.

Goals Scored: 24

  • 00′ to 15′ = 4
  • 15′ to 30′ = 3
  • 30′ to 45′ = 3
  • 45′ to 60′ = 4
  • 60′ to 75′ = 3
  • 75′ to 90′ = 7

Goals Conceded: 18 

  • 00′ to 15′ = 0
  • 15′ to 30′ = 2
  • 30′ to 45′ = 6
  • 45′ to 60′ = 4
  • 60′ to 75′ = 2
  • 75′ to 90′ = 4




Therefore, the Roma players have not experienced physical issues because they managed to score the most goals in the last 15 minutes. But a lack of experience or the fear of failing their objectives creates a mental problem that has critical repercussions on the final result. In fact, Di Francesco‘s side conceded 6 goals in the final 15 minutes of the first and second half.
