Europa League, Borussia Moenchengladbach 2-1 Roma: Thuram mocks the Giallorossi at 95 '


MOENCHENGLADBACH – As in the first leg, the minute 95 is very expensive for Roma, who this time loses even against Borussia M'gladbach and slips to third place, out of the qualifying zone to two days from the end as the Istanbul Basaksehir, meanwhile, is took the top spot thanks to the 0-3 success in Austria with the Wolfsberger. An absolutely undeserved ko from the Giallorossi who, after having remedied with Fazio to an unfortunate autorete committed by the same Argentine defender in the first half, they controlled without worries their opponents until the last action in which they were mocked by the air combination between Plea and Thuram. And now, also thanks to the resounding rigor given to the Germans in the first leg from Collum, the road to qualification is surprisingly complicated.

Fonseca still renounces Florenzi

Forced to give up Spinazzola, who remained at home due to muscle fatigue, Fonseca decided to re-launch Santon on the right, defending him once again to Florenzi. Then he confirmed Pastore, leaving Perotti on the bench. On the opposite side, Rose responded by surprisingly throwing the 3-4-1-2 with Ginter in defense, Wendt in the left lane instead of Bensebaini, Benes on the trocar and Stindl, who scored the first-leg equalizer, alongside Thuram in attack.

Fazio, clumsy own goal on an action flawed by irregularities

The Roma started well, evading the pressure of the opponent and touching the goal with a header from Zaniolo on the corner, but then he started to suffer the thrusts of the opponents, dangerous with the far-off conclusions of Stindl, Thuram and Benes. At 28 'Borussia lost Jantschke due to a muscular problem but Rose did not break up back into Zakaria defending and inserting Hofmann in the middle of the field. Pastore tried to take advantage of it by leaving in serpentine in the area and kicking at the near post but Sommer answered this. Borussia was not impressed and in the 35th minute he passed with a double bit of luck: Thuram received a ball from the sideline (but not detected by the linesman) from Wendt, he left on the left to Smalling and hit low towards Fazio who, for fear of being pressed, went unnecessarily into a slip and slipped the ball in the corner to the right of Lopez.

Fazio is forgiven and draws the score

Borussia in the second half started strong, intending to close the accounts immediately but Stindl, favored by a rebound, missed the opportunity to hit the goal from a favorable position. The Roma has rolled up its sleeves and, after engaging Sommer with a nice right round of Pastore, drew (64 ′) with Fazio who was forgiven for the mistake made earlier by diverting a punishment into the net in split cross from the left of Kolarov.

Thuram mocks Rome at 95 ′

Rose tried everything by ordering the 4-3-3 with the inclusion of Plea but Roma, with Diawara in place of Mancini, did not suffer, on the contrary: he also failed to counterattack 1-2 with Kluivert who did not find the mirror on an assist by Dzeko. When the 1-1 seems to be written here, instead, at the last dive (95 '), Borussia found the goal that gave him 2nd place: on a long throw, Plea jumped higher than Santon and he acted as a tower for Thuram who, lost by Fazio, slipped the ball into the corner to the right of Lopez. And so Rome returns home with its head bowed. To go ahead in Europe you will not be able to miss a shot.BORUSSIA M'GLADBACH-ROME 2-1 (1-0)
