Hopefully Zemen gets some of the regular starters out around the 60th minute.
Pjanic and Bradley are the two guys to watch. They are the only guys outside of the back 4 to play every minute in Roma's winning streak.
Gotta love these Roma kick offs with 8 men on the line. Bradley still on
Pjanic almost sneaks one in off a deflection, goes out for a corner which comes to nothing
Bradley has been very active in the first five minutes. Lots of touches to keep the attack flowing.
Goal Destro! Great assist from Pjanic. 3-0
Fantastic goal by Roma.
What was that Osvaldo? Sent off for an elbow.
Second corner in a row that ends in a Roma foul. Osvaldo gets a red card, looked like he threw an elbow
Just when you think Roma is going to cruise.... Never a dull game!
Osvaldo is an idiot. Talented player but it's decisions like this which is why I would never want him on my team or the Azzuri again.
Now, what does Zeman do in this situation? Up by 3 and down a man, most coaches would bunker.
Most coaches are not Zeman!
Bring on another attacker
Pull the keeper
63rd minute. Lopez on for a limping Destro.
What a save by Steklenberg.
Wow, inch perfect over the top ball from Bradley to Lopez to start an attack. Leads to a questionable non call on a hand ball in the box.
Then a few saves on the other end keep the score as is.
Bradley looks gassed.
76th minute. Balzaretti out for Dodo
Roma almost scores again. Would have been nearly identical to their second goal, but the shot hits the keeper.
Majority of the team looks gassed!
Fantastic reaction save on a point blank header by the Roma keeper!
Coach Billy Corgan's (Corgani?) gotta be pissed off that his Atalanta side did not get back into this.
FT. 3-0. Another solid outing from our boy. Another 90 minutes, another win, another clean sheet.
