Forgive me for being a bit arrogant, but I thought Roma securing all three points against Benevento would be a mere formality on Sunday. After all, Roma was perfect against bottom-half sides this season and newly promoted sides for a good long time. Meanwhile, the Giallorossi hammered the Sorcerers 5-2 the first time these two sides met.
Nevertheless, Roma is Roma and never ceases to amaze us. So, as dull as the draw was, Sean and I still found plenty to talk about as we recap the match against Pippo Inzaghi’s side. Once we put a wrap on that match we also look ahead to the Europa League Round of 32 2nd leg against Braga at the Olimpico.
Some of the episode highlights include:
- Vlahovic rumor
- Pellegrini/Immobile photo and ensuing banner drama
- Reasons for Roma’s offensive struggle
- Dzeko & Mayoral on the field together
- Pau’s 3rd straight clean sheet
