Match report: Roma 1-0 Cagliari

Away defeat for Cagliari against Roma: 1-0 the end result for giallorossi, courtesy of Sergio Oliveira’s penalty.

It took referee 3 minutes to blow for a questionable penalty for Roma: Carboni’s no fault on Zaniolo, VAR corrected the decision. For the next 30 minutes the match goes without emotion, until 33rd minute when another penalty is blowed: no doubts, Dalbert handles the ball. Sergio Olivieira puts away the penalty.

In the second half Roma packing numbers behind the ball to block a number of rossoblù efforts on goal. At 84’ Joao Pedro hits the crossbar from close range and the result doesn’t change.

Roma won, but for what it seemed on the pitch Cagliari deserved a draw: Mazzarri can still be satisfied with the game of his guys.
