Spanish goalkeeper Pau Lopez was among the standouts for Roma this afternoon against Inter in the Giallorossi’s 2-2 draw in the Italian capital.

The former Real Betis man made a number of decisive saves against Antonio Conte’s men and appears to have found his footing again after months of difficulties in the Italian capital — which even saw him relegated to the bench behind Antonio Mirante.

Lopez, though, was sensational, once again, for Roma and has cemented his place in Paulo Fonseca’s starting formation.

“We wanted to win and failed to do so, partly because of those 20-25 minutes in the second half,” began the Spaniard to Roma TV and DAZN.

“For a strong team like Inter, you can’t gift them 25 minutes of control. Afterwards in the dressing room, we felt like there were some things that went wrong. It’s a good thing that we managed to grab a draw in the final minutes, but we wanted all three points.”

Lopez drew praise for a a number of incredible saves, which included a point-blank stop on Lautaro Martinez.

“It was a good save, a bit lucky. I’m just annoyed we couldn’t get a win.”
