A couple of Roma players impressed this afternoon away at Bologna.
70/78 passes completed at 89.7%
5/5 headed clearances
28/31 passes complete at 90.3%
4/4 take ons
Both of these players were the standout players for Roma this afternoon. Federico Fazio was back to old self after a few off games and being left out of the starting XI. This time played as a back two instead of a back three. Looked solid on the deck and imperious in the air. Didn’t look troubled against the clever Destro. Also opened the scoring with a lovely half-volley.
Mohamed Salah was a constant threat down the right of a 4-2-3-1, he gave the Bologna defence a lot of problems with his direct running and take ons. He managed to score a lovely goal which gave Roma a 2-0 lead before half time. Also had a hand in Roma third and final goal this afternoon with a lovely through ball to Diego Perotti who played in Edin Dzeko for his 24th goal of the season.
