Torino 0-3 Roma
Goals: Abraham (33and and 42andSP) and Pellegrini (78andSP) for the Giallorossi
In the obligation to win against Torino to join the Europa League, Roma did not go into detail at the Olimpico in Turin this Friday evening (0-3).
The Romans, dominating from the start, however had to wait before finding the fault. And it is moreover from two errors in Turin that the deliverance came. First on a full axis throw-in from Samuele Ricci, intercepted by Lorenzo Pellegrini, serving a timely Tammy Abraham face-to-face (0-1, 33and). Then it was the turn of Etrit Berisha, pushed to the fault by Cristian Ansaldi’s bad pass, to mow down the Englishman in the area. A penalty converted in the center by the interested party for the double (0-2, 42and). The break without forcing.
In management after the break, neither of the two formations has sought to push during the last 45 minutes. But barely enough time to see Andrea Belotti rise from a corner to place a header that is too uncrossed (57and) for the Bull that the garnet defense has come back to do its thing. Knocked out in pivot by incoming Nicolò Zaniolo, Alessandro Buongiorno, also off the bench, got caught up in an avoidable shirt clash, handing the visitors a second penalty. Sentence serenely executed by Pellegrini (0-3, 78and). A new European campaign is therefore opening up to players in the capital.
A Roma now ready to glean the Europa League Conference. It will be next Wednesday against Feyenoord.
