It’s been awhile since we’ve had a Roma defeat on the pitch, but on match day 9, the Giallorossi were trounced by Napoli in Diego Maradona’s memorial match. Unfortunately, there won’t be much Romanisti will want to remember from this one. Nevertheless, Sean and I break down Roma’s first on the field loss since we launched Across the Romaverse and what Roma can do to avoid another letdown like this one.
Other highlights include:
- Did Roma lack the courage in this one?
- Could anyone have foreseen the poor performance from all 3 of Roma’s veteran attackers?
- Do Pellegrini and Veretout lack the composure to play together?
- Should Bruno Peres start on the right?
- What does Fonseca have to do to persuade Roma to compete in these kind of matches against opponents who won’t let Roma hit them on the counter?
- What’s to come in the week ahead?
