The Portuguese coach confirmed his new tactical approach and his men performed well once again. Fonseca’s Roma has the right balance.
We have been waiting for a Roma united and with the right balance, we can definitely say that Paulo Fonseca’s recent tactical changes gave a boost to his side. His 3-4-2-1 seems to be the right seasoning for a truly special dish, the skillful touch of the Portuguese chef.
The 3-man defensive line works really well and the leadership of the Armenian captain Mkhitaryan provides the right connections between the midfield and Edin Dzeko.

(Stats by SofaScore)
Fonseca clearly outperformed Conte at the Stadio Olimpico yesterday. But football can be fierce at times. Spinazzola played one of his best matches since his arrival in the Eternal City, but he also conceded a late penalty and the equalizer to Inter. The Italian fullback consistently supported the offensive phase throughout the 94 minutes but his final mistake saved the Nerazzurri.
Paulo Fonseca has the possibility to plan the next season focusing on new certainties. Two offensive midfielders behind the striker, three fast defenders, and a dynamic midfield line.
