Roma get access to the next round of the Europa League after a very tough match against Gent. Kluivert scored the equalizer right after David’s opener.
Mission complete! Roma got the ticket for the next stage of the Europa League. The Giallorossi will know their next opponents tomorrow. Although the Lupi didn’t play an unforgettable game, Fonseca and his men reached one of their objectives.
Justin Kluivert scored the equalizer just a few minutes after David‘s opener but the Giallorossi have definitely had many problems developing their offensive strategies.
Although in the press conference ahead of Gent-Roma Paulo Fonseca had clearly stated that his men would play a proactive match, the Belgian side dominated the operations throughout the 90 minutes.
Gent shot on target 6 times while Roma only once. The Lupi capitalized on their only shot on target of the night at the KAA Gent stadium. Fonseca’s group suffered from Gent’s physicality and enthusiasm.
Roma got access to the Europa League next stage, an important goal to try to change course to a season made of continuous ups and downs.
