Roma vs Inter: Giallorossi's Dream Run Ends in Setback



February 11th, 2024

Daniele De Rossi's reign as Roma manager started with a bang, boasting three wins in as many matches. His side, playing an "efficient and infectious" brand of football, hadn't yet faced a true test. Today's Roma vs Inter clash changed that, pitting De Rossi against Serie A leaders and presenting the toughest challenge of his young managerial career.

Highlights Of The Roma vs Inter Match

The rain-soaked Stadio Olimpico witnessed a Roma side take initiative early. El Shaarawy's curling effort nearly surprised Inter keeper Somer, followed by Pellegrini's close shave from distance. While their energy dipped, Roma's resolve held firm until a set-piece turned the tide. Lukaku's headed clearance fell to Acerbi, who looped a header over Patricio for Inter's opener.

Roma vs Inter took a new turn when Pellegrini's expert free-kick found Mancini, who leveled the score. Just before halftime, Pellegrini again showcased his dead-ball prowess, threading a pass to El Shaarawy whose shot took a lucky bounce off the post and past Somer, putting Roma 2-1 up.

The Giallorossi's lead, unfortunately, proved short-lived. Thuram silenced the passionate home crowd, running past defenders and finishing off a Darmian pass to equalize for Inter. Just seven minutes later, Thuram found himself involved again, forcing an own goal from Angeliño to put Inter ahead.

Both Teams Dominance

Despite creating chances, particularly a Lukaku miss, the Giallorossi couldn't convert. In stoppage time, Inter sealed the deal with an insurance goal, walking away with a well-deserved 4-2 victory.

While Roma displayed commendable first-half spirit, mirroring their previous performances, the final score revealed a stark contrast. Inter's key players stepped up, while Roma's faltered. This Roma vs Inter match served as a crucial reality check for De Rossi, highlighting the need for his young squad to rise to the occasion against top competition.
