Nemanja Matic shines in Roma’s big games

Serbian midfielder Nemanja Matic has proved to be a valuable resource for Mourinho’s team and his veteran status has helped him become the leader of the club’s midfield especially in matches with top opponents.

Despite being one of the older players on the roster, Matic was one of the most active individuals on the pitch in last night’s win over Juventus.

As reported by Corriere dello Sport, Matic recorded one of the highest number of interceptions and recoveries throughout the whole game, providing pivotal tackles to break up Juve’s counter-attacks at key moments of the game.

The player is expected to start in Roma’s upcoming first leg with Real Sociedad in the Europa League on Thursday night and be rested with Sassuolo on the weekend ahead of the Derby della Capitale.
