Roma: 3 points more than previous year not enough for the Champions League

The Giallorossi ended a long streak of 7 matches in 21 days with two defeats. Roma got 3 points more than last year though.

In 12 Serie A matches, Roma collected 22 points, three more than the previous year. Although it could be considered good news, it may not be.

6 wins, 4 draws, and 2 defeats so far for the Giallorossi with 20 goals scored and 14 conceded. From a statistical point of view, this season seems to be very similar to the previous one.

Although the group is very united and ready to fight to reach the club’s goals, numbers are there to testify a trend that may not be good enough to reach the qualification for the next edition of the Champions League.

In the 2018-19 Serie A season, Roma had collected 19 points after 12 games (22 GF, 15 GA). All those close to the club clearly remember what happened during the season. Eusebio Di Francesco was replaced by Claudio Ranieri and the Lupi failed to reach a Champion League spot.

The situation gets worse if we take into consideration the periods when the Giallorossi were constantly ending the season within the top 4.

In the first 12 Serie A games, Roma got 8 points less than the 2017-18 season, 4 less than the year 2016-17, and 4 less than the 2015-16 Serie A campaign.
