GHENT (BELGIUM) – Roma suffered on Gent's field but tore a precious tie that allowed it to qualify for the round of 16 of the Europa League by virtue of the victory for a zero achieved in the first leg of the Olympic Stadium. Kluivert , on Mkhitaryan's assist, responded to David's initial network.
Europa League, Gent-Roma 1-1: for the Giallorossi a flicker of Kluivert is enough.
Roma played a good first half where they scored a goal with Kluivert and hit a pole with Kolarov. Before the Dutchman's goal, there was the goal of David who was good at slipping between Spinazzola and Mancini and beating Pau Lopez by two steps.
In the second half, the Giallorossi practically disappeared from the field. The statistics are clear, the hosts have kicked 22 times towards the goal of Rome. Fortunately for the team coached by Paulo Fonseca, the opponents were not clear-headed and were not precise in the conclusions from the long distance.
This Rome has not yet overcome the crisis of the beginning of 2020. Tonight's result is the third consecutive profit after the victory of the first leg and the success against Lecce but Fonseca's team still does not convince and stands above all on some sporadic plays of his top level players.
Today Kluivert's goal was born from an invention of a champion like Mkhitaryan. Too little if you want to make your way in Europe. In a few hours, the Giallorossi will know the name of their opponent in the round of 16 of the Europa League as the draw will take place on Friday at lunchtime.
