AS Roma need a victory against Gladbach to retain the leadership

AS Roma, always had a delicate relationship with the Europa League. This is not the competition that nobody wants to participate in. So you can not feel disappointed when your club resigns to this destination, but if you participate, you can also win.

And for a club like Rome, which has spent more than 10 years without a title, winning the Europa League could be another successful season in the City of Seven Hills. We should not take it lightly.

With four points in their first two group matches, things are going well for Roma. With his brilliant blue teams, Roma beat Istanbul on the first day by beating 4-0. It was a goal in the second half Wolfsberger to be perfect two-two in group J, so it seems that Paulo Fonseca has understood the importance of this competition for his new team.

At the moment, Rome is at a dead end with Wolfsberger, each adding four points in two games while carrying an identical differential of +4, which makes tomorrow’s match against Borussia Mönchengladbach a real victory if Rome wants to finish the game. group. stage as soon as possible.

Mönchengladbach or, as they are sometimes called, the Foals (one of my favorite bands, by the way) have not done well in the Europa League since they have only one point in two games, but they are incredibly unbelievable. first in the Bundesliga, one point ahead of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

Although they have had good performances from France’s Alassane Plea and Marcus Thuram (7 goals and 6 assists), Gladbach’s performances do not seem totally sustainable, let alone Bayern’s unbelievably slow start. The Foals’ 15 goals and the +8 differential are each of the fourth-best in the Bundesliga, which is not good, but let’s face it: in just eight league games, Mönchengladbach has been eliminated twice. Again, it does not seem atrocious, but it’s still a 25% excerpt. The size of the sample is an important factor here, but something tells me that his reign on the table will be short-lived.

At present, the mutual ignorance of Rome and Mönchengladbach and their mobile triage unit of injured players could make a bet of it as well.

It is a total of 13 players combined that may miss this match because of an injury, and yet Mönchengladbach ranks first in his league; unbelievable I do not claim to know how Mönchengladbach overcame these injuries, but as we discussed earlier this week, with serious injuries all over the field, Paulo Fonseca may have to be creative.

While we focus this previous discussion on the attackers, without Lorenzo Pellegrini, Amadou Diawara, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and now Bryan Cristante, the center of the field in Rome is unfortunately thin, leaving Jordan Veretout as the only standing rotation element still standing, and thank God for that.

Veretout’s mix of skills is very good for Fonseca football, but its value will really be highlighted now that he is the last midfielder. Without Veretout, he would probably be losing sleep when he thought of Javier Pastore starting in the double pivot, but his incessant tactical and professional intelligence makes this nightmare much more enjoyable.

Since this is their first encounter and they are both bleeding injuries, I would not expect any unequal match, it has everything to do with a goal issue at one time, and if it’s really the case, the strikers of Rome must find their way,
