Rome with Cetin and Fazio in defense
Fonseca must do without the suspended Mancini and the injured Smalling: at the center of the defense space therefore for Cetin and Fazio. Holder of the Europa League, Florenzi is confirmed on the right, while in the trio behind Dzeko Perotti he wins the runoff with Mkhitaryan. Simple, without Kurtic, he prefers Igor to Strefezza on the left lane and Paloschi to Floccari to pair up with Petagna. The start of the tender is a red and yellow one. The Roma presses on the accelerator and shows off good offensive plots, but lends itself to the host restarts. After the goal touched by Dzeko in split at the invitation of Zaniolo, it is the Spal to go a breath away from the advantage on 11 ', if it were not for a feat of Pau Lopez on the diagonal of Petagna addressed to the corner.
Spal forward from the spot
The Giallorossi, escaped the danger, try with a shot from the edge of Dzeko, a header from Cetin that touches the crossbar and a grindstone around Perotti, deflected for a corner by Missiroli on the 23 '. As the minutes pass, however, Fonseca's maneuvers become more settled and loses brilliance. The Spal controls without particular worries and at 42 'finds the episode that allows her to break the balance. Kolarov is surprised by Cionek's pressing and, although unintentionally, hits him in the area. Giua indicates with determination the diskette: Petagna, back from two consecutive errors from the eleven meters against Udinese and Brescia, this time does not forgive.
Giallorossi overturn with Pellegrini and Perotti
At the beginning of the second half, Roma immediately came forward, with the Ferrara team giving the impression of being crushed too much in their area. The Giallorossi pressure takes little to materialize and at 53 'Pellegrini equalizes with a shot from the edge, thanks to a touch of Tomovic that puts Berisha out. Luck does not smile at the Spal who accuses the blow and continues to suffer the initiative of Fonseca's men. At 66 'Vicari lands Dzeko in the area and Giua decrees another penalty, transformed in an exemplary way by Perotti.
Mkhitaryan closes the accounts
The guests struggle to react and produce only a flare that, in the space of just over a minute, sees Petagna losing a physical duel with Kolarov in the area, without reaching the shot, and Murgia kicking in a bad way from an excellent position. The thrill shakes Rome, skilled in the final to close the accounts thanks to the cross of an enterprising Florenzi for the newly entered Mkhitaryan, who supports a few steps into the unguarded network. The Giallorossi rise in the standings, Spal cola a peak and Semplici awaits decisions on its future.
