Edin Dzeko and Cengiz Under, and also the contribution of opponent Biraschi, made Roma find the winning ways once again in the Serie A. The victims were rock bottoms of the League, Genoa, who scored their consolation through Pandev in the 3-1 home defeat to the Romans. The game at Luigi Ferrari Stadium happened for the 20th Matchday of the League.
This way, the Romans return to the top 4 with 38 points, three ahead of Atalanta, who lost their match.
The fans who arrived late at the stadium can certainly regret it. The visitors pressed a lot and, at the 5th minute, Under crossed the ball in the area, as it went through everyone and ended up in the back of the net. It wasn’t intentional, but the deadlock was broken. 0-1 Roma.
One became two At the 44th minute, as Genoa’s Biraschi managed to score a goal. However, on the wrong side. The defender tried to clear a delivery from Spinazzola but ended up sending the ball to his own goal.
Thankfully for Genoa that Pandev showed up a minute later to score Genoa’s only goal, after a great pass from Schone.
The second half started differently. Genoa were playing with more intensity and attacking more than expected. If it wasn’t for Pau Lopez, the hosts would probably have scored their second goal.
However, the night was only good for the Spanish keeper, because at the 74th minute, following a mistake by Perin, Dzeko was able to score the third goal of Roma and seal the victory.
After the 3-1 win, Roma will now switch focus on competition, giving attention to the important match against Juventus, in Turin, for the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia.
For Serie A, their next match will also be an important one, against the good team of Lazio. Genoa, on the other hand, has the week to prepare themselves for the match against Fiorentina, away, on next Sunday.
