The giallorossi collect three vital points at the Stadio Olimpico in a tough challenge well played by both sides. Roma get to the fourth position of the Serie A standings for the first time since the beginning of the season.
What a great match in the eternal city! Roma and Torino fought vigorously to collect the three points but the giallorossi triumphed thanks to some phenomenal plays of their talents. Nicolò Zaniolo made the impossible possible during the 45 minutes. He delighted the crowd with superfine touches and by supporting his teammates in the offensive phase.
Lorenzo Pellegrini played in front of the backline with Cristante. The Italian midfielder provided a delicious assist to Stephan El Shaarawy who scored the winner towards the end of the match.
A very good performance also for Karsdorp. The Dutchman harvested the right-flank today at the Stadio Olimpico. The former Feyenoord man is finally fit and his offensive propulsion is phenomenal. Di Francesco is giving him chances to get back in shape and play a great second part of the season.
Roma are now sitting in a Champions League spot albeit Lazio and Milan still have to play their matches.
