Roma collected three important points at the Stadio Olimpico crashing Lecce since the start thanks to the sublime performances of Dzeko and Mkhitaryan.
The Roma fans can finally rejoice again. The Giallorossi played a convincing match at the Stadio Olimpico and scored four goals on a day in which they dominated their opponents.
Under, Mkhitaryan, Dzeko, and Kolarov sealed the result but all the players provided their contribution today. The Bosnian striker and the Armenian midfielder had remarkable performances in front of their fans.
Mkhitaryan started the game on the left flank and shifted towards the center when Fonseca replaced Pellegrini at the beginning of the second half. Dzeko, instead, was always operating between the offensive lines to trigger Roma’s wingers. The Bosnia international is a sublime player. He has football in his feet and in his head. He is an absolutely irreplaceable player.
Although Fonseca would need Diawara as a playmaker to perfectly develop his football, he made a few tactical changes today. Smalling and Mancini kept the backline high up and Veretout and Cristante had more support and a much-limited area of the pitch to cover.
