Facing the lowly Genoa Cricket and Football Club on the road today, Roma were the prohibitive favorites in this round seven fixture, even with star striker Edin Dzeko out following his COVID-19 diagnosis. Despite the odds being tilted in their favor, the early returns in this match were quite worrisome, as the sloppy pitch, an early injury and several missed chances seemed like they were cooking up a disappointing end to the weekend.

But no one told that to Henrikh Mkhitaryan. After scoring a stoppage time header before the stroke of halftime to give Roma the lead, Micki saved his best for the second half. In a performance that can only be described as flawless, Mkhitaryan powered Roma with three goals, six shots, four dribbles and five key passes. In a word, he did everything for Roma tonight, never relenting even during the darkest moments of the match.

So, in case you missed it, feast your eyes on the Henrikh Mkhitaryan show.
