Roma scored three goals at the Stadio Olimpico and collected three more points. The Giallorossi defeated Torino and reduced the gap with AC Milan.

The Lupi have been doing great since the beginning of the season and today’s match against the Granata showed the immense offensive potential of Fonseca’s side once again.

Although Torino played more than 75 minutes without a man (the referee sent Singo off in the 14th minute), the Giallorossi seemed to be well-positioned on the pitch and ready to manage possession since the start.

After having scored three goals (Mkhitaryan, Veretout, and Pellegrini), Fonseca‘s side lowered the pressure and managed the energy for the next matches.

The three points were our main goal. We knew it wasn’t an easy match. But we won and we did it well.

The Portuguese coach seemed to be happy with the performance of his team albeit he would have preferred to see better possession from his men playing 10 vs 11.

This is the moment to think about Atalanta though. Roma will face Gaperini‘s side on Sunday in a direct clash for the top positions of the Serie A standings.
