AS Roma swallowed up the disappointment with its ‘goal decision’.스포츠토토
In the 2022-23 Europa League (UEL) round of 16 playoff match held at the Red Bull Arena in Salzburg, Austria on the morning of the 17th (Korean time), the home team RB Salzburg won 1-0 against AS Roma.
According to the record, Roma was inferior. However, while Salzburg, who struggled hard to seize opportunities in front of the goal, sought opportunities with mid-range shots, Roma seized opportunities inside the box several times and created several close-to-scoring scenes.
But determination was a problem. In the first half, Roma’s attack aimed at the head of Tammy Abraham through a side early cross, but failed to score as they turned away from the goal by a narrow margin.
Salzburg’s solid defense, and Roma’s attack, which strangely turned away from the goal, added the game to the brink of a 0-0 draw.
However, in the 43rd minute of the second half, Salzburg defender Strahina Pavlovic raised a diagonal cross, and Nicolas Capaldo, rushing in from the back, finished it off, tipping the balance in an instant.
With less than 5 minutes left including extra time, there was nothing Roma could do.
Roma manager Mourinho expressed regret at the defeat, saying, “It feels really unfair.” On the other hand, Salzburg coach Matthias Jaisle expressed satisfaction, saying, “It was good. It was a well-trained result.”
Roma, who was on the defensive with the defeat that day, prepares for the second leg at their home stadium, Stadio Olimpico. The match between the two teams will be held on the 24th at 5 am.
