Roma leaves the Stadio Tardini without points and gets out of the Champions League zone after today’s defeat against Parma.
It’s not possible to go beyond human limits. Fonseca’s players were very tired today and D’Aversa‘s side wisely took advantage of this situation. The home team waited for their moment patiently. The Ducali were very tight behind the line of the ball and scored the opener during the second half. That was the pivotal moment of today’s match with the Giallorossi unable to react properly.
“I think the team was certainly tired today. These players have played several matches and it’s not a question of attitude,” said Fonseca to Sky after Parma-Roma.
The Gialloblu were very dangerous on the counter. Although the Portuguese coach tried to change a few players in the second 45 minutes, Roma was certainly tired after the recent Europa League efforts.
“As I said, it wasn’t a question of attitude today but it’s a question of not having a reaction in the first few meters…It was a difficult game and Parma is a great team. They deserved to win,” said Paulo Fonseca.
