As soon as the referee blew the whistle in the Olympic Stadium of Rome… The Roma fans could already celebrate the goal! Straight up! Roma just needed one minute to open the scorer this Monday (14th) and start what would be a good victory with no difficulties. The 22-year-old Czech strike, Patrik Schick, commanded the 4-0 win over Virtus Entella, a team from the third division, that put the team on the quarterfinals of the Italian Cup – the opponent will be Fiorentina.
The match had barely begun when Ünder crossed from the right and Schick, in a beautiful acrobatic shot with the right leg, placed the ball in the corner of the goal defended by the goalkeeper Paroni.
Despite that, the second goal took time to happen: it was scored only at the extra time of the first half. After a confusion inside the box, Schick passed the ball to Marcano, who shot and made the second goal for the home side. The Czech, who was playing the match of his life, scored his second goal (the third of Roma) at the 47th minute, with a beautiful shot, now with the left foot. And Pastore, taking advantage of the good assistance of Kluivert, finished the amazing victory constructed by Roma.
