The Lupi have the quality to face the top sides. The Portuguese coach gave a clear tactical identity to his team. His players have quality and personality, required characteristics to be competitive and ambitious.

We must think that we can always do what we do in many moments of the game. We must always be aggressive. We cannot make mistakes against teams with this quality.

The predictions made before the game turned out to be correct. Lukaku and Martinez have been very dangerous and Hakimi is simply an amazing fullback who scored a stunner in the 63rd minute.

But when Antonio Conte decided to replace the Argentine striker, the Moroccan talent, and Vidal, Paulo Fonseca played Cristante to solidify the midfield line and the match changed again.

Bryan did very well. He made a big impact. The truth is that it was important to have Veretout on for the first pressure, but Bryan came on and did very well.

Today’s takeaway is that Roma can fight against top sides. The team is mature, the players have the necessary quality to do great things until the end of the season.

Small details can decide big games and the course of a championship. But the feeling is that today’s draw could give a further positive boost to Fonseca’s group.
