On Monday, after a hard-fought 1-0 win over Salernitana, Roma will face yet another easy task on day 2 as they play host newcomers Cremonese to their Stadio Olimpico. The Giallorossi proved their worth in the season opener, with summer signing Paulo Dybala missing a couple of clear-cut opportunities to open his goal-scoring account. Jose Mourinho’s troops are seen as one of the main candidates to win Scudetto, and they are surely capable of recording a routine win over Cremonese in Rome.
Roma were off to a winning start with a 0-1 away win in Salero against Salernitana on the opening week of Serie A. The Giallorossi looked sharp and should have increased the score after 20 goal attempts of which five were on target. In the end, Mourinho had to settle for the narrowest of margins. The Portuguese coach said that the important thing was to win, nevertheless, there were some shaky moments in their defense.
The newly-promoted side, on the other hand, experienced some problems at the back in a 3-2 loss Fiorentina. Despite ending up on the losing side in their Serie A opener, Cremonese showed very high-level football. In fact, the Tigers equalized twice during the match and despite having a man sent off, they held on to a point until the 95th minute when their fans’ hearts were broken.
It was a great counter-attacking game by coach Massimiliano Alvini. In addition, goalkeeper Radu was the man of the match on the visitors saving eight of Fiorentina’s goal attempts. Last season, Cremonese suffered seven defeats on the road in Serie B, that tally can be much higher among the elite teams. The Cremonese midfielder Gonzalo Escalante was sent off in the previous round and is suspended, which could end up affecting the team more than we might think.
