Last weekend’s result in Turin was disheartening, to say the least. Roma was toothless in attack and dropped a crucial match to an underwhelming Juventus side. With that result in the back of their minds, there was always a chance that Roma would carry some of that negativity into this weekend’s match against Udinese.
Luckily for us, especially those of us that woke up at the crack of dawn in North American to watch Sunday’s match, Roma was turned on from the opening whistle against Udinese. There would be no struggle to find the back of the net against a well-coached Zebrette as we saw during the first match-up in Friuli.
Roma was clinical en route to its 3-0 win over Udinese; one that looks even better after the other results from around the league. There were plenty of positives to take out of this one as Roma gears up for its Thursday trip to Portugal to face Braga in the Europa League Round of 32—but there were also a few negatives.
