The Roman Syndrome

Roma and Lazio’s Europa League defeats show that both clubs suffer from the same basic problem, writes Vilizar Yakimov.

Another week, another Europa League fiasco for the Serie A sides. The two almost identical defeats that Roma and Lazio suffered put the qualification of the two Capital clubs at serious risk with two games left.

It wouldn’t be harsh to say that Simone Inzaghi’s men need a miracle at this point, as they are now six points off second-placed Cluj, while Celtic’s triumph at the Olimpico puts Neil Lennon’s men out of reach. Odds in the USA - and everywhere else - are strongly against Lazio now.

Inzaghi: 'Lazio had the chances'

Simone Inzaghi feels Lazio should’ve had a penalty against Celtic, but concedes their own mistakes proved decisive. “This group was well within our reach.”

In all except the win over Rennes, the Aquile took the lead only to lose 2-1, paying for wasted opportunities in attack and howlers in defence.
