Roma returned from the international break looking to continue its run of three straight matches with a win in all competitions. Three more points looked necessary as the Giallorossi try to claw their way back into the top four with a trip to the San Siro on Sunday. And when Roma went up a man just before halftime, it looked like that proposition became a bit easier.

However, a stubborn Monza side held out, nearly ruining Roma's day. That was until Stephan El Shaarawy struck in the match's dying moments. The goal was sweet vindication for a player whose name was dragged through the mud over the international break as part of the betting scandal rocking the Italian peninsula.

In this episode, we discuss the Monza match and El Shaarawy's heroics before focusing on the upcoming matches against Slavia Praha and Inter Milan.
