Across the Romaverse #64: Roma Spoils Napoli’s Perfect Start

Roma couldn’t find a way to break the deadlock, but a solid defensive performance from the Giallorossi means that Napoli is no longer perfect in league play.

Thursday was a disaster there are no two ways about it. Losing to Bodø in the UEFA Conference League is lower than any of us could’ve imagined Mourinho’s Roma could sink. The loss, which featured mainly second-team players, created many talking points around the capital heading into Sunday’s big match with Napoli.

It was time to put up or shut up for Roma, especially Mourinho’s preferred XI after their understudies put in a brutta figura in Norway. And while the Giallorossi were unable to score the decisive goal against the league’s only perfect team, they also didn’t concede to Napoli’s dangerous attack.

It’s a result that should right the ship as the Giallorossi move ahead with their daunting calendar that features two more matches in the upcoming week.

In this episode, we break it all down, while looking ahead to another busy week in the Romaverse. So, tune in and let us know your thoughts in the comments section or on social media.
