If Roma will not react promptly, they will miss the train that would lead them to the Champions League. Fonseca works to find the right countermeasures.
Although Atalanta are only three points ahead of the Lupi at this time, Gasperini‘s side seems to be much more solid and efficient than Roma. Paulo Fonseca, instead, is struggling with the tactical issues that are affecting his group lately.
The Portuguese coach must find the right countermeasures as soon as possible. The qualification for the next edition of the Champions League is the club’s main goal of the season, but the Nerazzurri are now ahead of Roma and the Giallorossi will face them at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia next week.
Roma‘s recent performances have not been positive. Fonseca‘s team lost 4 home games since the beginning of 2020 and suffered 7 goals in the last two matches against Sassuolo and Bologna. A structural decline that the expert coaches of the Bel Paese are taking advantage of game after game.
The Giallorossi have conceded an average of 1.30 goals per game since the beginning of the season and 1.88 per game in the last 8 matches (+44.6%). Although the Lupi have been scoring more goals recently (average goals scored this season 1.83 pg vs 2.00 in the last 8 games), the team seems to be unbalanced and vulnerable.
