Today's match meant nothing to either Roma or Juventus in the immediate sense, as both clubs locked down their respective spots on the table prior to this match. For Juve, that mean their ninth straight title, while for Roma a fifth place finish ensured direct qualification to the Europa League next season. But that didn't make Roma's victory today any less momentous. Not only did the Giallorossi capture their first victory at the Allianz Stadium, today's win was their first against Juve on the road since January of 2011.

What's more, Roma's reserve players showed out today, as the likes of Riccardo Calafiori (making his Serie A debut), Diego Perotti, Davide Zappacosta and Gonzalo Villar each put in strong shifts, especially the latter, who looks like another midfield gem for Roma.

Paulo Fonseca weathered several storms this season and seems to have Roma pointed in the right direction, finding the right combination of players, roles and tactics as we close the 2019-2020 season.

We still don't have a precise start date for the 2020-2021 season, so enjoy the last bit of league football you'll see from Roma for at least a month. And what an ending it was.
