Roma’s record “poor” without Chris Smalling

Andy Mattioli

Roma continue to struggle without their defensive leader in Chris Smalling who was recently suspended due to too many yellow cards.

In his absence, Marash Kumbulla was called to action in the match with Cremonese, but ultimately Roma failed to maintain a clean sheet against the worst team in the league.

According to Corriere della Sera, statistically Smalling is irreplaceable for Roma.

In 15 games that Smalling has missed, Roma only won eight of them, drew twice and lost five, conceding 22 goals and keeping 4 clean sheets.
