The Giallorossi suffered a deserved defeat against Atalanta yesterday. Stats highlight what didn’t work.
In competitive football, a single detail can change the outcome of a match. When things do not work on an individual level, the tactical aspect can help but not change the course of a game.
Fonseca‘s men tactically played a fair match and albeit Atalanta is a consolidated team that is training together for years, the Lupi fought to the end to not lose the battle.
But when you lose too many individual duels and when you don’t cover the areas of competence properly then everything becomes more difficult. Stats help us understand why Roma left the Stadio Olimpico with a deserved defeat.
