With Europe hibernating, Juve did better at the same number of turns. Tonight at the Olimpico come the new rossoblù of Mihajlovic, DiFra: “Now you have to make mistakes as little as possible”
We do not know if “the winter of our discontent” will turn (Shakespearean) into a “glorious summer”, as monologated Richard III, but one thing is certain: Rome with the beginning of the cold season has changed pace.
This is what the figures tell us about, which anabolize optimism in light of the Bologna challenge tonight.
ONLY THE JUVE
In fact, since the Champions League has gone into hibernation in December, Di Francesco’s team in the league has done only worse than His Majesty Juventus, collecting 17 points in 8 days, making a still image on the eve of this day that is coming to an end.
That is: if the “bianconeri” looked at all from above with 20 points collected, immediately afterward there were Roma with 17, on equal merit with Napoli and Atalanta.
But despite the “Giallorossi” team having a game less than the top-level competitors in the standings – that between Friday and yesterday have all fallen on the field – the possibility of still being in second place remains intact, because Juventus has won and has risen to 23 , Inter has momentarily hooked up to 17, but Atalanta has stopped at 17, as well as Lazio to 13, while Milan has risen “only” to 16.
In short, to take advantage of a single length there is It was only Naples, but Rome can already overtake tonight. Overall morale: if the championship started in the winter, the Giallorossi would be calmly in the Champions League, the first goal of the season.
FROM BOLOGNA TO BOLOGNA
In short, despite all the hesitations of January, it seems far from that bad September, culminating in Bologna 2-0, which opened the first real seasonal crisis in Rome.
“In this season the moments are a bit ‘alternating – indeed admits Di Francesco – at one point we have climbed the slope and then we are back down. Now you have to make mistakes as little as possible.
The match of the first leg is not a beautiful memory, but it must serve us not to go back. However it will be a different challenge because this is another Bologna, has another coach and many new players. This is why the team works differently than before “.
Compared to the last match against Porto, Olsen is sure to return, while Kluivert should take the place of the ill-fated El Shaarawy.
Worth mentioning as Nzonzi pawing for a starting spot, perhaps from slide midfielder. Having said that, Roma is more pawed than ever and must get closer to Milan.
“The team of Gattuso is giving so much continuity – Di Francesco closes – Paqueta and Piatek, then, gave new life to the Rossoneri”. Very true. This is why braking against Bologna would be a way to freeze a “hot” winter.
