Zaniolo classifies Roma after the scare

Thanks to the umpteenth agonizing triumph of this course,Rome qualified for the Europa League round of 16 playoffs. The Giallorossi, to finish second in their group, only had one chance: to beat Ludogorets, a rival to whom they had lost in the first leg and which was confirmed to be very difficult. The Bulgarians scared Mourinho enough, who started with Belotti and Abraham, and was saved thanks to another great performance by a Zaniolo that continues to grow.

The Romans dominated the match in the first half, but they did so without any aim and ended up paying for it. Those of Simundza closed the spaces well and sought to do damage with the counterattacks,Something they achieved in minute 41 with Rick, who ended a great career with a powerful low shot from the edge of the box, unstoppable for Rui Patrício.

Faced with the emergency, Mourinho made three changes during the break: Zaniolo, Cristante and Volpato replaced Camara, Belotti and Karsdorp, and it was a decisive move. The former Inter player, knocked down in the area by Cicinho, first forced the equalizing penalty and then the 2-1 penalty (receiving a push from Verdon), both materialized by Pellegrini. Ludogorets reappeared to give the Olímpico one last scare in minute 78, when Nonato pushed a Tissera shot between the sticks cleared by the local defense. The goal was annulled with the help of VAR due to a foul by Ibáñez on the play and, shortly after, Zaniolo signed the sentence with a solo play that ended with the goal of 3-1.

In discount time, Verdon ended his lousy game with an absurd stomp on Zalewski’s neck, which cost him a direct red card thanks to the VAR images. It’s official: Roma will not defend the title won in May, nor will there be a derby with Lazio in the Conference. Mou will continue his adventure in the Europa League.
