As June turned into July, Paulo Fonseca returned to the drawing board following a downturn in his side’s play. Milan, Napoli, and Udinese took nine points away from Roma, forcing the boss to re-examine his tactics and player choices. 

While his strategy of total football would undoubtedly remain, there were whispers within the press that the coach was trying out a 3-4-2-1 formation. Yet unforeseen in the first three quarters of the season, it was immediately met with positivity, highlighting certain players’ attributes.

There was no shortage of entertainment in a 6-1 thrashing of SPAL, but while Bruno Peres bagged a brace, Nicolò Zaniolo will go viral with his stunning solo goal.

The Giallorossi made short work of already-relegated SPAL, aided by some poor defending and goalkeeping, with Nikola Kalinic, Aleksandar Kolarov, Carles Perez and a rare Bruno Peres double on target.

Alberto Cerri had temporarily equalised with an acrobatic header, and less than graceful landing.
