In a shorter episode, we run through all the talking points in Roma's round four fixture against Benevento.

We're only five episodes into our podcasting careers and we're already throwing a curveball at you. Rather than a lengthier discussion on a host of broader (but still interesting) topics, we're narrowing the focus to Roma's next opponent: Benevento. Serie A's newest side is actually higher on the table than Roma at the moment, but the Giallorossi are deeper, more athletic and quite simply the better side. But, as we all know, that seldom matters in matches like these.

Steven, Sean and I sat down for a quick 25ish minute chat about Sunday's fixture at the Olimpico. Among other topics, we discuss Roma's finishing woes, Paulo Fonseca's substitution patterns and whether or not Pau Lopez has earned a token appearance in goal.

We were a bit rushed towards the end thanks to a few restarts and the Zoom timer haunting us like the sword of Damocles, but we like the format: short and to the point, perfect for a match preview. We got our feet wet with this one, but look for the format to grow and develop as the season progresses, especially when Roma face larger opponents.

Enjoy!
