Fonseca wants lots of goal-scoring opportunities from Roma

Marco Iacobucci Epp /

The Portuguese coach is not worried about the numbers of his offensive players. Fonseca wants his side to create many opportunities to win the match.

The most important thing in football is to score goals. But it is certainly easier to bring home the three points when a team is able to create many dangerous offensive opportunities.

Paulo Fonseca focused on this factor in yesterday’s press conference ahead of Roma-Juventus. Edin Dzeko is helping his teammates in developing Roma‘s offensive strategies albeit a few more goals could have positioned the Giallorossi higher up in the Serie A standings.

The gap with Inter, Juventus, and Lazio is wide but Roma must give their best today to halt Maurizio Sarri‘s side. “It’s true, we must score more goals. But I’m not worried about the goals scored by Dzeko or the other players… When I analyze the team, I look for whether we are creating chances,” said Paulo Fonseca to the press yesterday.

Roma host Juventus at the Stadio Olimpico at 2:45 PM EST. The fans of the Giallorossi hope for a great performance from their idols. Fonseca wants to see his side to be confident and aggressive. The main goal of the Lupi is to collect vital three points against their historical rivals.
