Roma continues to progress and, after being the first team capable of scoring points against leaders Milan (3-3) on the previous day, today they achieved a convincing victory against Fiorentina (2-0) that keeps them one point behind. Champions League positions. Leonardo Spinazzola opened the scoring and former Barça player Pedro Rodríguez, the best ‘giallorosso’ player at 33 years of age together with Henryk Mkhitaryan, closed it with his third goal in Serie A.
Pedro clearly won the match against José Callejón, who went unnoticed, like the veteran Franck Ribéry, in a Fiorentina with no option at any time to score at the Olympic stadium.
Spinazzola opens the scoring
Spinazzola began to show the clear superiority on the scoreboard in the 12th minute. A long clearance by goalkeeper Antonio Mirante was not cleared by Fiorentina’s rear in midfield and turned into a lethal counter. The winger, in a winger position, took advantage of it, cut off a defense and beat Bartlomiej Dragowski with a low shot close to the post.
Pedro was able to score 2-0 shortly after when he finished his diagonal with a shot that narrowly missed him (18 ‘). Dragowski kept Fiorentina in the game by deflecting a header from Edin Dzeko after a corner kick (23 ‘) and with a double save from shots from Rick Karsdorp and Mkhitaryan (37’).
Pedro sentences after spectacular counterattack
Roma deserved to go to rest with a greater advantage and insisted in the second half. Jordan Veretout and, again, Pedro were close to sentencing the game until the former Barça player achieved it in a spectacular against Roma from his field.
Dzeko received through the middle, opened to the right and Mkhitaryan first put the ball diagonally to the far post, where Pedro entered from behind and pushed it into the net at will (70 ‘). With his homework done, Paulo Fonseca immediately withdrew the canary to admit another former Barça youth player, Carles Pérez.
