The offensive strategies implemented by Paulo Fonseca are particularly effective when Roma hosts its opponents. The Stadio Olimpico is a fort!
Yesterday’s match against Udinese confirmed the efficiency of the Giallorossi in the Eternal City. The Italian capital seems to be the perfect environment for Pellegrini and Co. to outperform their opponents.
ROMA | Home Games | 2021
- vs Sampdoria: 1-0
- vs Inter: 2-2
- vs Spezia: 4-3
- vs Hellas Verona: 3-1
- vs Udinese: 3-0
Since the start of 2021, the Giallorossi have played 6 home games and scored 13 goals (an average of 2.16 goals per game.) If we do not take into consideration the Derby della Capitale (technically Lazio hosted Roma on January 15th), the Lupi would have scored an average of 2.6 goals per game!
Two Italian players have definitely made a difference in the period under consideration. Captain Lorenzo Pellegrini has scored two goals (vs Inter and Spezia). The strong defender of the Lupi and Italy international Gianluca Mancini stepped up and rapidly became the indisputable leader of the defense line. Since the start of 2021, he also scored two goals (vs Inter and Hellas Verona).
But the quality of another player deserves a mention. Borja Mayoral is a real talent, a striker capable of playing for the team and scoring many goals as well (3 in the period under consideration; a brace against Spezia and one against Hellas Verona).
