The Spaniard made a difference in the last Serie A away clash against Genoa. Pau Lopez protected Roma with two prodigious saves in the second half.
He came from Spain with humility and a great desire to learn and live a new and difficult football. He started his new professional experience with the pressure of having to make fans forget the much loved Alisson after the departure of the Swedish keeper Olsen.
Pau Lopez has now become the right man to defend the Roma goal and protect his teammates in tough moments. His two saves against Genoa were simply wonderful. His reactivity is impressive and his desire to win also made him argue with Cristante right at the end of Genoa-Roma.
Roma purchased a sumptuous goalkeeper capable of making a difference when needed. Yesterday, he made two remarkable saves against Edoardo Goldaniga and Goran Pandev. The fans of the Giallorossi celebrate the performance of a champion, a goalkeeper also deeply involved in the development of Fonseca’s football (40 touches).
