    1-1 after 15 minutes, with both veteran strikers scoring (Ibrahimovic and Dzeko).

      As with the first half Roma concede two minutes into the restart - maybe a side-effect of putting the clocks back at the weekend?

        Ibra brace, two velvet-soft penalties and a 3-3 draw, Great game with abysmal refereeing and defending.

          I listened more than watched. It seemed like Roma's awarded penalty was a mistake. ESPN announcers talked about the ref not going to VAR, which is odd. Those early goals in each half should be a serious concern. Basically the team wasn't ready to play.

          I posted last time, that Roma has looked good against teams that won't compete for runner up spots to Juve and will probably struggle against the other pretenders. And here we go. This was the first Milan game I saw (as much as I did see) and they didn't look that great, which means Roma don't look that great either.

              It's all a bit complicated they were docked a point for refusing to travel to Juventus due to two players having Covid-19, with Juventus awarded a 3-0 walkover. According to the leagues rules they should have played as games can only be cancelled if the team has less than 13 fit players. however they were advised by the local government not to travel. So this will go to appeal so at present the league standings are all up in the air.

                Excellent and surprising 2-0 win by Sassuolo at Napoli.

                  Oddly Roma's defense continues to shine this season and now the problem is scoring goals across Europa and the league. Sunday saw a good result against Fiorentina (2-0). The first Roma goal was a lot of luck as bad passes took lucky bounces and Roma scored. The second goal was much better with Mikhitarian sending a perfect cross through the six yard box and Pedro tapping it in. Fiorentina never really troubled Roma at the back. I don't remember more than a couple shots and then when Fiorentina went down to 10 men very late, that was that.

                    Insigne with a superb free kick for Napoli to mark the sad death of Diego Maradona, fitting tribute that brings a tear to the eyes.

                      Mertens with the third, one of only two players to outscore Maradona at Napoli as well as being being given Diego's middle name as a tribute by Napoli supporters.

                        It ends 4-0

                        An absolutely fitting tribute Roma never had a chance

                          Possibly exhausted by their efforts at Anfield, Atalanta went down surprisingly tamely 0-2 at home to Verona yesterday.

                            I'm 82 minutes into the Napoli-Roma game and am done. I see above that so are Roma. I think Roma played football for 5 minutes so far. Pitiful, but good for the Napoli fans.

                                Was just coming to post: Six different Roma players score goals, although one was an own goal. Really the scoreline is both representative of the match and a bit off. Roma were really, really good in the Bologna half. But Bologna had some goals called off because of VAR, so they had chances. At various points the score was different than VAR took the goals away. I don't pay attention to other matches in Serie A so Roma's top 4 position probably slipped later, but hopefully not.

                                      Roma (2) - Inter (2). I'm posting a few days late but have been focused on FA Cup and watched this one in chunks. Inter were the much better side but Roma scored early and late. I guess a point is good when Roma should have lost.
