To understand that Roma-Ajax is the most important game of the year, Fonseca goes without saying, but the Portuguese at the press conference wanted to reiterate that even to keep the team focused, because of flaws in defense of a season. full of ups and downs, and now at a crossroads. “We can’t get it wrong,” the coach said, repeating the spell from a few weeks ago.
The frightening thing is that Dzeko and his teammates, strong 2-1 in the first leg, will be able to comfortably have 2/3 results available to go through. For the only Italians left in Europe, not only Naizon’s pride and ranking, but also the semi-final of the Europa League, a goal that could turn the tide of a volatile season. now. This is why Mkhitaryan’s rebound is fundamental and the segment of the match against Bologna on Sunday has been moved into the match against Ajax. However, Fonseca’s team won’t just need the note. “We’ll need balance and we’ll have to fight as if the first leg wasn’t there because today will be the most important match of the season,” recalled Fonseca, who continued to play. there is no Smalling. The Englishman has returned to personal training on the pitch, but does not feel like returning to play a game despite being optimistic about the defender’s recovery in the coming days. Nor will there be El Shaarawy, Kumbulla and Spinazzola; As for the full-back today, however good news came today, he was not injured, stretching his muscles, allowing for a quick recovery. The anti-Ajax squad, then, was soon made with eight changes from the championship. Pau Lopez will return to goal, while the defense will be made up of the Mancini-Cristante-Ibanez trio. In midfield, confidence is confirmed in Calafiori on the left flank with Karsdorp on the right and midfield pair Diawara-Veretout. Mkhitaryan is back on the ride with Pellegrini, behind Dzeko, who will be the attacking terminal ready to lead Roma to their second European semi-final in three years after the 2018 Champions League. finding his 30th in Europe with the Giallorossi jersey and one of his goals tomorrow could be of great value to the coach’s future, just as he does. eliminated in January after he was eliminated in the Italian Cup with Spezia. Rust, however, in the most important game of the year will be set aside and Dzeko, even without the rank of captain, will lead the team will also see three Primavera players among them.
