After scoring many goals at the start of the season, Roma is now less proficient in front of the goal. Fonseca is working hard to solve this issue.
The Portuguese coach knows that after a great start of the season, his side is now wasting several goal-scoring opportunities. This may affect the efficiency of Fonseca’s football, a very offensive tactical system that should put the opponents under pressure.
But Paulo Fonseca is not worried at this time. As he confirmed in today’s press conference ahead of Sampdoria-Roma, his team is creating several opportunities in every game. “We are working on that. I would be worried if the team was failing to create chances. Against Cagliari, we had 10-12 goal-scoring opportunities. We did that in difficult conditions against a side that sat deep and compact,” said Fonseca to the press today.
Roma‘s coach knows that his side must finalize their offensive efforts and together with his collaborators, he focused on this important matter. “We are trying to improve this aspect which is the most important. This week we focused on this with the players,” confirmed the Portuguese coach.
Roma on the road towards Stadio Marassi to face Sampdoria without many injured players. Although the match could be postponed due to incoming bad weather, Fonseca should play Kalinic up-front. The Croatian striker is an experienced player who scored 33 Serie A goals over three seasons.
