He was “stuck” at the home of Torino and continues to trouble Roma


“Stuck” in her headquarters Turin and did not stay with just one victory in the first five matches of this year’s Serie A Roma.

Although Jose Mourinho’s team managed to take the lead with his goal Lukaku in the 68th minute of the match, it was tied for the final 1-1 by Duvan Zapata in the 85th minute, failing to follow up on the victories he celebrated against Emboli (7-0) and Sheriff (2-1).

Torino missed the first chance of the game in the 5th minute, with Patricio making a stunning save on Zapata’s header, while the hosts were superior in the first half, with Roma not having a single final shot on target.

Despite Cech’s 52nd-minute strike for Torino, the Giallorossi improved in the second half, with Cristand also scoring in the 58th minute, before Lukaku open the scoring in the 68th minute, after… a pivot move and a beautiful finish. However, the hosts found the answer in the 85th minute, with Ilic taking a free-kick and Zapata to throw himself in the path of the ball, “writing” the final result with a powerful header.
