Talk about sweet vindication. On Saturday, the Giallorossi felt that in spades. Not only did Roma finally get the “can’t beat a top side in the league” monkey off of its back, but much-criticized captain Lorenzo Pellegrini also scored the all-important winning goal.

It’s a victory that could propel the Giallorossi back on track after a rough couple of weeks where Mourinho’s men dropped results to Fiorentina and Bologna to kick off a grueling six-match run. With the win, Roma has righted the ship, and now must keep it on course to the objective of Champions League qualification.

In this episode, we discuss the crucial win over Napoli and look ahead to the last match of 2023: a big trip to the Allianz Stadium against Juventus. Will Roma ring in the New Year in style or find themselves again looking to get things right yet again? We discuss that and plenty more on the latest episode of the pod.
