To be honest, this game against Roma could be the best for the Felipe’s all career. Really, he was playing wonderfully in the defense.
Roma couldn’t find the way to score the equalizer goal
To say Roma was playing extremely bad – to be wrong, surely. But they were sleeping till the moment when Salah could equalize the score, but Casillas made fantastic stop with left leg.
Daniele De Rossi’s red card
The Italian team looked like «Mortal Kombat» game characters in some moments of the match. 39 minute – Daniele De Rossi wanted to tackle the ball, but instead of it he could even hurt badly Maxi Pereira’s leg. De Rossi got his red card and the Mexican was not able to continue the game with his injury.
Emerson Palmieri’s red card
After De Rossi’s red card, Luciano Spalletti did the substitute – Paredes off – Emerson Palmieri on. There were any chances to save the game with 10 players, but Emerson Palmieri in usual case in the centre of the field did the dirty foul. There was clear «red card» foul for the player.
Roma was in deal till the 73th minute
Roma’s fans can be proud of their team, because they didn’t give up attacking even with 9 players. But they couldn’t play like that till the end of the game, because they are humans, not robots. Porto scored 2nd and then the 3rd goal very easy in 2 minutes. Roma’s players were so much tired, they just couldn’t make one normal attack till the end.
Anyway, Roma will play in Europe League. There will be a lot of chances to have the success for Luciano Spalletti’s team.
