The Giallorossi and their coach are more united than ever. Fonseca pushes his side to react and his players believe in his project.

Although the weather conditions have been prohibitive and the many injuries are creating huge problems for Paulo Fonseca, Roma played a sumptuous Europa League match yesterday at the Stadio Olimpico.

In the post-match interview, the Portuguese coach clearly stated his players were deeply disappointed and devastated by the mistake of the referee. But the group must be able to overcome adversities even when frustration could take over.

Roma is a compact side with a great desire to react. By analyzing the players’ average position in the last Europa League clash Roma-Borussia M’Gladbach, it is clear that the high position of the backline played a pivotal role.

Fazio and Smalling kept the line high thanks to the support of Mancini who played in midfield close to Veretout. The Frenchman also supported the offensive phase helping Pastore right behind the trident Dzeko, Zaniolo, and Kluivert.

It’s interesting to see that the three offensive players of the Giallorossi shifted to the center to leave space to the fullbacks Spinazzola and Kolarov. A consistent performance of the Lupi in front of one of the best German sides. The group is with Fonseca and they work hard to react to these unexpected difficulties.
