Roma scrape 2-2 Athletic draw

Roma fought back twice for a 2-2 friendly draw with Athletic Club Bilbao, although there was a red card, Aleksandar Kolarov scorcher and cheeky Nicolò Zaniolo incident.

The game was played at Perugia’s Stadio Renato Curi and Edin Dzeko, reportedly on the verge of a €20m transfer to Inter, was on the bench.

Amadou Diawara made two errors in front of the defence in the opening 26 minutes, one of them leading directly to a goal, as Inaki Williams could thread through for Iker Muniain.

Inaki, Deulofeu or Suso for Roma?

Roma director of sport Monchi is looking to Spain for Mohamed Salah’s replacement, targeting Inaki Williams, Suso or Gerard Deulofeu.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport and As, the Giallorossi aim to finish off new Coach Eusebio Di Francesco’s 4-3-3 system with some Spanish flavour.

Barcelona just activated their buy-back clause to get Deulofeu from Everton following his loan spell at Milan, but there’s no guarantee of regular first team football at Camp Nou.

He could therefore be sent out on loan or sold at a profit.

Eusebio Di Francesco once again cursed Sassuolo’s luck after a 3-2 defeat to Athletic Bilbao ended their Europa League hopes.

The Neroverdi had taken an early lead with a comical own goal, but after losing Lorenzo Pellegrini and Davide Biondini to injury almost simultaneously, they crumbled at the San Mames.

“At the moment things just seem to be going wrong for us and we are not rewarded for our efforts,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“We must focus on ourselves, because this is a period where we work very hard and reap very little. It is our own fault, though,” said the Coach in his Press conference.
