Veneto lightning goal despite the relegation gained in the afternoon, then the expulsion of Kiyine. Four yellow and red crosses
The good news for Italian football is that even those who have nothing more to ask for (Empoli) or who have already been relegated (Venice) are honoring the championship. The bad news for Mou that, by dint of thinking about the Conference, Rome is losing Europe.
There is also bad luck and chance in the draw against Venice in the afternoon – after the 1-1 of the Salernitana – he had lost all hope of salvation. The numbers: 46 shots by Roma against 4, 16 on goal against 2, 20 corner kicks at 2, four cross bars hit. Thus you win 99% of the games but football is different from all other sports because it knows how to go against logic.
There is a particular, however, which must not escape in view of the final on May 25 with Feyenoord: Roma is getting used to starting with a handicap. In Florence there was the contestable penalty for a foul by Karsdorp after 2 minutes. Okereke’s goal against Venice after 49 seconds, with the defense lined up as a crib (Ibanez the most guilty).
So, cursed the bad luck and celebrated the return of Spinazzola from the first minute in the Giallorossi after 380 days, Rome is no longer in control of its destiny but has to wait for the results of the other contenders for places in Europe. The risk of finishing eighth in the league and having to play everything in the final in Tirana.
Venezia played with enormous competitive spirit, heartened by the immediate goal. ten in the 32 ‘for a raptus by Kiyine, who hit Pellegrini with a kick where it hurts the most, and then defended himself as if a point could save her from Serie B. The Finnish goalkeeper Maenpaa, with his own style, has worked miracles. Abraham and El Shaarawy missed goals that seemed to have already been scored. After the 4-0 at Bodo Glimt, Roma scored 3 points in 5 games. Too little not to suffer until the last minute of the championship and beyond.
