The Bosnian star scored his 100th goal with the Roma jersey. But the shocking defeat against Sassuolo complicates the race for the Champions League.
Each Serie A match can be decisive. The Giallorossi had been celebrated for their wonderful performance in the Derby della Capitale, but their spell against Sassuolo at the Mapei stadium was simply disappointing.
The new captain of the Lupi is now in charge of shaking up his team. Roma are a good team made of many young talents but experienced players are those who can change the course of a season.
I previously analyzed the current moment of the Giallorossi writing about quality and expectations. These are two key factors in football and also the Roma striker spoke about a lack of quality in the post-match interviews yesterday.
When Sky Sport asked him about what Roma are lacking this season, Dzeko clearly stated: “I don’t know, maybe a little more quality is missing…The team is strong but to get to win something you always have to win.”
Edin Dzeko scored his 100th goal with the Roma jersey at the Mapei stadium yesterday. Although that is a remarkable achievement for the captain of the Giallorossi, the team must do much more to support him in the offensive phase.
According to the stats, since the beginning of 2020, Roma fail to capitalize on the opportunities. Fonseca need to find the right countermeasures as soon as possible and the team needs a win in the next Serie A clash against Bologna.
