On Sunday at the Olimpico, the Giallorossi battled second-place Inter until the bitter end and managed to pull out a late draw. On paper, it was a good result, but it’s another piece of ammunition for Paulo Fonseca’s detractors, as Roma failed to beat yet another big side. However, the draw should come as no surprise as it’s the sixth consecutive time these sides have shared the spoils.
