Roma scores three goals at Stadio Olimpico without winning the match. The defense line needs immediate help.
We all knew that but transfer market negotiations are tough and slow sometimes. Roma faced Genoa in front of their fans yesterday and the final result was almost predictable.
Fonseca‘s group made important offensive plays but the backline must be strengthened as soon as possible.
Roma follows Barcelona‘s tactical system but this strategy may not be the best for a team that doesn’t have the same potential of the Blaugrana.
The Giallorossi want to recover the ball quickly when they lose possession. The Spanish side has shown the world that it can be done but Florenzi admitted there’s much more work to do at this time:
“That is our model. They were playing with one man at the back but you couldn’t escape from that five seconds. We have been working on it since the beginning of the retreat,” said Roma captain to Roma TV right after the match.
This is a difficult strategy to replicate. Players and experience make the difference in football and albeit Roma is a good side, it has several youngsters who lack experience.
