One-shot on target, not enough for the Champions League (Stats)

bestino /

After a good first half, the Giallorossi completely disappeared at the Gewiss stadium. Atalanta push Roma far away from the UCL.

Another match…another defeat, Roma’s disappointing trend goes on. Although the Giallorossi played a good first half, their performance significantly dropped during the second 45 minutes and Atalanta took advantage of that. Gasperini’s side clearly is a better performing team at this time.

One-shot on target cannot be enough when you play a big match. Stats are there to testify that Roma seem to be stuck in the development of their offensive plays. 8 shots on goal in 90 minutes for the Lupi, but 7 of those were blocked or off-target. Only 2 corner kicks and 0 big chances created, yesterday’s match against Atalanta confirmed that Fonseca’s team is passing through a tough moment.

Now that the qualification for the Champions League seems to be an almost impossible dream, the fans are probably waiting to know the next strategies to relaunch the club.
