Roma fail to beat a great Sassuolo

Those from De Zerbi, despite the losses, tied at two with the giallorossi, thanks to goals from Traoré and Raspadori.


Black moment in Serie A for Roma, which after defeats with Parma and Naples did not go from a draw at two on their visit to Sassuolo. The Neroverdi arrived at the clash depleted by casualties and had to give up their best men. The covid and the injuries knocked out Defrel, Ayhan, Bourabia, Berardi, Caputo, Locatelli, Ferrari. The identity that De Zerbi gave to his group, however, made his team also know how to play with so many absences, and do it very well.

Sassuolo dominated the start of the match, brushing 1-0 with Maxime Lopez, who hit the post. The giallorossi, who started with Mayoral and without Veretout, Dzeko and Pedro, grabbed a great Carles Pérez, who starred in a volley neutralized by Consigli and, later, forced a penalty for a foul by Marlon. It was done by Pellegrini, who before the break reached inches from 0-2 with a nice thread.The goal, yes, did not take energy away from Sassuolo, who in the resumption warned with a great personal move by Raspadori, neutralized by Pau López, and put the tables with Traoré, who pushed the ball between sticks with his chest in a corner hairstyle by Djuricic.

Roma reacted again and after a hand-to-hand wasted by El Shaarawy, Bruno Peres converted a low center from Spinazzola into the 1-2. The locals did not give up: Raspadori, who was already the protagonist with the Italian under-21 team, closed his wonderful week wearing the bracelet despite his 21 years and scoring the decisive goal of 2-2, surprising in the heart of the area to Cristante and Karsdorp after a pass from the recently entered Oddei (another who, at 18, promises). The scoreboard did not move again and Roma, with this result, complicates their fight for the Champions League positions, which now have five points. On Thursday, however, comes the appointment with Ajax in the Europa League, where the capital, the only Italian club still alive in continental competitions, this season were perfect. It will be a huge opportunity to lift your head.

Atalanta victory

Atalanta beat Udinese 3-2, to the rhythm of Colombians Luis Muriel, the protagonist with a double, and Duván Zapata, who scored a goal. Gian Piero Gasperini's team achieved its third consecutive triumph, after those against Verona and Spezia, and placed third alone, in the Champions League zone. Muriel and Duván were able to work for two weeks in Bergamo, as the matches of the South American teams had been postponed due to the coronavirus and they showed a great state of form.
