The Giallorossi defeated Fiorentina at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday. Roma’s 3-man defense keeps the lines tight and favors Fonseca’s offensive strategies.
Another convincing performance for the Giallorossi in the Eternal City. Since Paulo Fonseca changed his tactical system implementing the 3-4-2-1, his group is clearly more compact and solid on the pitch.
We played a good match and created many opportunities against a tough team. It’s a very important win.Paulo Fonseca said to SKY after Roma-Fiorentina 2-1
22 total shots for the Lupi and Pau Lopez suffered only 1 shot on target throughout the 90′ minutes. The Giallorossi now have the ability to develop their offensive strategies continuously (4 big chances vs 1).
The performance of Fonseca’s backline has been remarkable as well. Smalling, Mancini, and Kolarov provide the necessary stability to their teammates.
We can press higher up with this tactical system…Kolarov and Mancini have offensive qualities and when the opponents drop down, they can push forward.Fonseca said to Roma TV
Roma seems to be a very strong and physical side at this time and the team plays with great confidence and quality.
