The Giallorossi conducted a very good match against Borussia until the referee gently conceded a questionable penalty to the German side.
Roma’s players were about to take home the three points today at the Stadio Olimpico but a wrong decision by the referee changed the final result. The Giallorossi would have deserved the win in front of their fans and under an unexpected deluge.
Now the situation in the Europa League Group J is intricate. Although Roma is leading the group with 5 points, Basaksehir and Wolfsberger are chasing the Lupi with 4 points each.
Paulo Fonseca spoke to Sky right after the match and unveiled that his players are very disappointed for the final outcome of a match really well played since the start: “It’s tough to accept something like this. The players were all devastated in the locker room. We cannot forget that we played against the leading team in Germany and with all the problems we have we kept things under control.”
When asked if this match could have bad repercussions on the future, the Portuguese coach clearly stated: “This is football. We have to react promptly. We know that we played a good match and that these players would have deserved a different result and the possibility to win.”
