Across the Romaverse #129: Late Drama at the Olimpico Sees Roma Drop Precious Points

It looked like Roma had stolen three points against visiting Milan until it hadn’t. Join us as we recap Roma's collapse against the Rossoneri before shifting focus to the midweek match against Monza.

Roma's Saturday evening fixture against Milan was a cagey affair with no shots on target through 90 minutes. Then, in the blink of an eye, Roma was up after Tammy Abraham found the back on the net with the club's first shot on target in the 93rd minute. It looked like Roma had found a way to take all three points in a massive six-pointer against top-four rival AC Milan.

That pleasure lasted about a whole three minutes when Milan found an inconceivable 96th-minute equalizer on a broken play through Alexis Saelemaekers. Just when it looked like an injury-depleted Roma team had gotten the job done, it turned out to be too good to be true. Instead of being in control of their top four destiny, the Giallorossi are now mired in a major dogfight.

So, in this episode, we talk about the match, the table, and much more, including:

  • Tammy’s almost heroics
  • Is Rui to blame for the equalizer?
  • Pellegrini’s performance
  • Matic continues to impress
  • Celik steps up
  • Leao kept on lockdown (almost)
  • Mourinho’s post-match quotes
  • The injury crisis
