    Marquinhos is only 18 and Tach/Florenzi have 8 serie A starts between them so Bradley is the most experienced midfielder. Hopefullly this experiment doesn't backfire on Zeman.

    Bradley had a shot that went right to the keeper.

    The pace of play is amazing. Atalanta just had about a 3 man breakaway due to Roma's extremely high line but couldn't score. Roma looking good though.

    I can't see how Roma can win playing this way...it's just crazy...could be 3-0 Atalanta.

    1-0 Roma. Totti dinks one over the defense to Lamela who is just able to finish past the keeper. Don't know how they haven't allowed a goal, but they're winning now.

    Funny missed penalty by the ref, Atalanta player stumbles trying to make a challenge, falls over the back of Lamela's legs and brings him down.

    Great chance for Destro, off the bar. 1-0 at HT

    Tachtsidis has a yellow and just had a clumsy foul to give up a free kick so I'm wondering if he'll make way for De Rossi. Although I can't see Bradley going 90 yet at this crazy pace. No one has really played well, everyone is giving the ball away. Zeman's system just seems to be chaos, or maybe that's what it looks like while the players are still figuring out how to play in it.

    Piris is not getting back fast enough and it gives Atalanta too much space.

    One of the commentators just mentioned that Bradley has consistently been making great, lung-busting runs from deep in the midfield far into the attack but that his teammates haven't found him consistently enough. And the other commentator replied that while that's true, his runs have been opening up a lot of space for his teammates, so they're still proving quite valuable.

    And Bradley's goal came off one such run, following up on a rebound.

    Destro had the ball at the left corner of the box, Bradley came over and made a run to his left, Destro shot and the keeper spilled it as Bradley continued his run to get to the ball and calmly finished over the keeper.

    Bradley off in the 71st minute. Good return to action, not perfect but a goal and constant running.

    The goal was well taken, tight angle and lifted over keeper. Not as easy as he made it.

    Maybe he was onside after all. I thought he was off.

    Another view of it. Can't really see the offside decision on this one, but to me it looked like the far CB kept him on.
