ROME – European Thursday ends with two wins for the Italian teams. After the 2-0 success of Inter on the Ludogorets pitch, here is Roma's victory against Gent. The success of the Giallorossi was signed by the first goal with Carles Perez's Roma shirt, a former Barcelona striker . This is a non-trivial success for a team that had lost six of their last eight games starting 2020 in the worst possible way.
Europa League, Roma-Gent 1-0: Perez decisive goal. Bad recovery for the Giallorossi.
Rome has not yet recovered, it is still recovering, but thanks to this victory it will be able to face the return match, which will be in an exact week, with the favors of the prediction. What really mattered was not conceding a goal and Roma tonight, albeit with a bit of luck, did it.
It was a two-faced Rome. In the first half she was the owner of the field and closed it deservedly ahead thanks to a goal by Perez on a clear pass by Dzeko. The former Barcelona striker came in front of the opposing goalkeeper and overtook him with an unstoppable left.
In the second half, Roma suffered the return of guests. The Giallorossi still can't play two times with the same intensity and have seriously risked ending the match on the draw. Fortunately for Fonseca, Pau Lopez pulled three rather important saves out of the cylinder.
The qualifying speech will be decided in a week at Gent's house. Roma start with the advantage gained at the Olimpico but will have to pay more attention in the defensive phase because it cannot rely only on Lopez's saves.
