Mou saves himself again with a penalty in the discount

A penalty just before the final whistle saved Roma against a great Udinese, who deserved more and conceded the equalizer one step away from victory. The Giallorossi, with this result, chained eight days without losing in Calcio, but in the Dacia Arena they suffered a lot, especially in the first half.

Cioffi’s team, which started with a great Deulofeu, took the lead after a quarter of an hour thanks to a left-handed thread by Molina, unstoppable for Rui PatrĂ­cio. Before the break, in addition, a whiplash from Makengo came within inches of the 2-0 lead, bending the goalkeeper’s hands and hitting the crossbar. The romanisti only met with a few attempts from Abraham and Sergio Oliveira, but they grew after the restart, when they came close to drawing with the young Felix, El Shaarawy and Pellegrini. Udinese were also close to the sentence in the final stretch, denied twice more by Rui PatrĂ­cio against a Pussetto center and a cross from Samardzic.

Thus the discount was reached and, as happened against Spezia, Mourinho got the decisive goal there. This time he didn’t have to wait until 99′, but he did wait until 94′, when the referee punished a handball in the Becao area with the maximum penalty. Captain Pellegrini took charge of the shot and forgot the mistake against Juventus with the tenth goal of his season. It is an important point, which leaves Roma in the European positions in a fundamental week: they play the second leg with Vitesse in the Conference League and a very hot derby della Capitale.

Atalanta 0-Genoa 0

Atalanta could not pass the goalless draw at home, against a Genoa that is close to salvation, and he needs a defeat of Lazio in this twenty-ninth round of Serie A to stay in European positions. Atalanta could not overcome a relegation team and got into trouble. It seems that the team led by the Italian Gian Piero Gasperini cannot perform at its best in the domestic championship and in the Europa League at the same time.

Genoa, despite being inferior, faced the match as equals and could take all three points, but they were not successful in the offensive section.

The Colombian Luis Muriel, starter in the league again, performed at a high level, but it was not enough for the locals. In fact, the Colombian international crashed into the wood with a shot placed with his right leg that would have made it 1-0 in the first half.

with the draw, Gaperini’s men rose to fifth position in the table as Roma lost to Udinese, but a goal in the last minute by the ‘giallorossi’ brought the Bergamo team back to the sixth and, although with one game in hand, they remain at the mercy of Lazio, who play on Monday against Venice.

The Genoese, meanwhile, accumulate seven days in a row drawing, something that helps them cut points and keep alive the hope of salvation. With this last point they add up to 19, remaining three behind Venice and six behind Cagliari, a team that marks salvation.
