The Turkish scored and Alisson para, but the rossoblù protested for a contact Kolarov-Farias in the Giallorossi area, judged regular. Lopez is third last: it gets very hard How is it said? Maximum result, minimum effort. Roma will qualify for the next Champions League by winning 1-0 in Cagliari, capitalizing at most a Ünder network in the 15th minute of the first half. Now only one point is given to Di Francesco for mathematical certainty. That point that now separates Cagliari from the fourth place, with two difficult races in the calendar (Fiorentina and Atalanta) and a big problem to solve: the goal. Too many occasions wasted by the Sardinians, in the face of a Rome that has played with the minimum of laps after the European efforts.
From Liverpool to Cagliari, stress is in the head and in the legs. And maybe that's why in the heating Manolas stops for a muscular problem: Di Francesco then chooses Capradossi, the absolute debut in Serie A. Cagliari starts well, even if the climate around is not the best: the president Giulini has been contested and players threatened with choirs before and during the match. But Deiola already after 16 seconds touches the goal, with a left that is not surprisingly Alisson. The Roma seems to wait, Cagliari instead pushes head down and at 8 'becomes dangerous with Farias: right to turn from the edge, in a central position, even this one just to the side. Then, suddenly, two flames Rome. Ünder first made the general rehearsals of the goal, saving a shot on the line from Lykogiannis on 13 '. But two minutes later is the right time: Dzeko works perfectly a ball at the edge of the area and serves the Turkish who controls with the left, returns and kicks with the left-handed to kiss the far pole, for his seventh goal in the league.Get your free daily vox betting predictions.
Then the game resumed the initial script: Cagliari to press all over the field, Rome trying to fall asleep the rhythms. And for a while he succeeds, except to go back to suffering in the last quarter of an hour. At 33 'Alisson is attentive on a shot of Pavoletti in the center, at 36' it is even more to save an "attempt" of own goal by Bruno Peres, intervened in split a few steps from the door to divert a cross from Deiola. And the same Deiola becomes dangerous even at minute 39, with a left that does not end far from the poles of Alisson.
Di Francesco realizes that something is wrong, especially on the left wing where Gerson makes Kolarov desperate. So the coach of Rome corrected the 4-2-3-1 initial bringing Gerson to the midfield in the role of internal left and raising Nainggolan in the trident of a 4-3-3. But the direction of the match does not change. Twenty seconds and Alisson badly calculates the time of the exit on Farias, the ball bypasses the Brazilian goalkeeper but the end of the attacker Cagliari is deflected for a corner. Three minutes of fire for Roma, Cagliari wins three consecutive corners and crushes the Rome but responds to the 5 ': cross of Kolarov, Lykogiannis anticipates Under the second post but returns just on the turkish and almost does not come out the more bizarre than goals. As in the first half: blaze, then again almost only Cagliari, which besieges Rome. And at 10 'waste the impossible with Farias, launched by Faragò, all alone in front of Alisson stumbles after the first check and wasted the chance of a draw, being reassembled by Capradossi.
