After a first half of resistance grenade, the Giallorossi are unleashed in the second half and repeat the success of the first day with Fiorentina. Veretout and Abraham also scored
It takes Rome a long time to take the measure of a willing and discreetly organized Salernitana in the defensive phase. Then the boys of Castori collapse in front of the greater class of the Giallorossi with Lorenzo Pellegrini decisive and able to unlock the game in the most delicate moment, closing with a good brace. Beautiful Abraham’s first goal, something more than a promise for our championship. And then the usual Veretout, Roma scorer with 3 goals. Mourinho can be satisfied with this full-score start of his team, while Castori awaits indispensable reinforcements for a team that, as it is, is likely to struggle a lot to save itself. The 13,000 fans in the stands who have always encouraged the team, encouraging the grenades even at the end of the match are commendable.
Few spaces for Mou
Mourinho in this period confirmed the basic formation that beat Fiorentina and Trabzonspor, with the exception of the suspended Zaniolo, replaced by Carles Perez. Beavers makes a virtue of necessity, with a team still to be reinforced and the defenders counted, due to the unavailability of the Croatian Bogdan, who felt ill in the hotel in the morning. The 3-4-2-1, with Obi and Maradona Coulibaly behind the only striker Bonazzoli, turns into a low 5-4-1 in order not to leave verticality to the Giallorossi. who build a goal ball at the start with Pellegrini able to sort for the Uruguayan Vina who commits Belec with the left-handed. Then at 16 ‘a blaze from Abraham deflecting a Mancini cross shot, but raising the aim. The Salernitana goes on in tears, with Bonazzoli able to defend balls to pick up his own. The center-forward also reaches the conclusion on a cross, from a free-kick, by Jaroszynski, a little high by Bonazzoli’s shot. Roma tries to circumvent with the outsiders and on a lightness of the Tunisian Kechrida, Mkhitaryan puts in the middle an inviting ball that does not find a recipient. Abraham, however, despite the lack of understanding with his teammates, it is clear that he is a thoroughbred attacker. And a turn of the Englishman’s head touches the intersection, shortly after half an hour, on a cross from Perez. Roma can’t find spaces and tries to counterattack right at the end, when Belec thinks out to anticipate Abraham on Jaroszynski’s short back pass.
The turning point
At the beginning of the second half, with a faster and more effective Roma and a Salernitana who concedes the fleeting moment to the Giallorossi. Because Aya does not close the space in the area, Pellegrini is able to look for him and Vina is quick to serve him: the conclusion of the Roman and Romanist is strong and Belec is unable to stop a shot that is not exactly impossible. Now the game changes and Roma finally find the spaces they were looking for from the beginning. Beautiful action of the 2-0 with the ball forward-back-forward, centrally: Abraham serves behind Mkhitaryan, the perfect assist for Veretout who is still on time in the goal area and third center in the league for the Frenchman. Now the field is downhill for the Romans and terribly uphill for the Salerno people. Bonazzoli wastes a good assist from Obi who could shorten the passive. Then Castori moves on to 3-5-2 by inserting the new signing Simy. The hosts try to set up but widen the defensive shirts and Roma go to a wedding. The 3-0 is Abraham’s first Italian goal quickly to turn right. The 4-0 comes with a brace from Lorenzo Pellegrini who shoots undisturbed from the edge with Belec depressed and guilty spectator.
