Match Ratings: Udinese 1-0 Roma


GK Antonio Mirante: 5

Too slow off the line multiple times and while he can’t be entirely faulted for the goal, Olsen’s presence was felt in the lack of defensive organization.

RB Davide Santon: 5

Unfortunately the only thing noteworthy with his performance was being beaten way too easily for the goal.

CB Juan Jesus: 4.5

Very poor for Udinese’s goal and his positioning in the disallowed goal was just as bad.

CB Frederico Fazio: 5

Impressively absent this game and had only the VAR to thank when he wandered way too far from his position.

LB Aleksandar Kolarov: 5

Another disappointing performance and did nothing to cover for Fazio in the disallowed goal.

MF Bryan Cristante: 6.5

A positive for Roma was Cristante offering a solid performance with a few impressive runs.

MF Steven N’Zonzi: 6.5

Continued proving his price with another confident performance.

RW Justin Kluivert: 6

A quiet game for Kluivert where he looked understandably disappointed with his performance when he was subbed off.

AM Lorenzo Pellegrini: 6.5

Played a few clever passes but reminded us that despite his impressive performances, he is no miracle worker, at least not yet.

LW Stephan El Shaarawy: 6

Performed with good energy today but wasn’t able to deliver the quality needed in a game where Roma focused a lot of their attacks through the left flank.

ST Patrick Schick: 5.5

Did well to create space for the other attackers but not much else.

Manager Eusebio Di Francesco:  5

Another international break where most of the team gets extra training with their coach and another loss after the international break to an at-best mediocre side.

Substitutes:

Cengiz Ünder RW: 6

Didn’t get to see much of the ball despite proactive movement.

Edin Dzeko ST: 6

Made his presence felt by getting as much of the ball as he possibly could but didn’t do much with it.

Nicolo Zaniolo AMF: N/A
