The Giallorossi put their heart on the pitch and defeated Manchester United. Roma had many opportunities to reopen the clash but De Gea saved the Red Devils multiple times.

Roma’s mission was almost impossible after the burning defeat 6-2 suffered at the Old Trafford in the first leg of the Europa League semifinal. But the Lupi approached the game with the right attitude and put the Red Devils in serious danger.

Three goals scored and many other opportunities to change the destiny of today’s clash. But David De Gea‘s remarkable performance kept Manchester United on track.

The Spaniard made 10 overall saves at the Stadio Olimpico, 9 of them inside the box. When Dzeko and Co. pushed forward trying to knock the British defensive wall down, De Gea showed his quality and kept his side into the game and towards the Europa League final.

The Giallorossi made 22 shots on goal, 12 on target. Paulo Fonseca‘s men had 7 big chances and managed possession throughout the 90 minutes. A remarkable performance for the Lupi. We cannot forget that the Portuguese coach had more than 10 unavailable players today.
