We already saw yesterday in the visit of the Romans to the Bernabeu, in which Real got 3 as he could have gotten 6, that Rome is made foxes in the defensive aspect.
The team has given up to 12 highs this summer, and although it retains in its defensive line of 5 the backbone of the team that eliminated FC Barcelona in the last Champions, the mother of the lamb is in the march of 3 very specific names.
With all due respect to Olsen, the titular goal of Sweden in last World Cup signed after the sale of Allisson to Liverpool, is not at the level of the Brazilian.
But the most important problem I understand is that the march of two “dogs of prey” from the midfield as Strootman and Nainggolan.
His absence has left a gap in the media that at the moment does not cover the recently signed N’Zonzi, who is not even the shadow of what it was in Sevilla.
Yesterday for example saw a Roma split between his powerful defensive line and Dzeko as a more advanced man, but in between a team with limited ability to pressure that allowed the Real Madrid attackers to reach the line of 5 Roman defenses by waves.
Yesterday, Lopetegui allowed his team to play their best game since coming to the bench with a difference, which came as a pearl to Julen with which he was falling to his team for his short and horizontal game similar to Spain in the World Cup.
Madrid players who in the offensive aspect were doing a mediocre season and far from their best version, such as Carvajal, Modric, Kroos, Isco, or Casemiro, all shone above what they had been doing. With the exception of only Benzema, who does not even visit this Rome so delicate serves to redeem himself.
In the league record, Roma are also not firmer defensively than we saw yesterday, starting with last weekend’s match by Chievo, who came from behind 2-0 to finish 2-2.
In the 1st round the Romans won in Torino al Torino (0-1), but in the 2nd they drew 3-3 at home against Atalanta, and in the 3rd they lost 2-1 at San Siro against AC Milan.
We have against the pick that the Olympian visits a Bologna with 1 puntito and that is next to Frosinone the only team that has not yet scored in the league.
PREDICTION: Both teams to score / NO @ 1.95
