Roma-Udinese 3-1: Risultato, Gol e Highlights della Partita di Serie A

Roma-Udinese: Mourinho’s Duo Secures Victory

A Decisive Performance

In a match that saw Roma take on Udinese, it was the dynamic duo of Dybala and Lukaku that sealed the victory for the Giallorossi, propelling them towards the outskirts of the Champions League zone. Dybala scored the goal that put Roma ahead 2-1, while Lukaku played a crucial role in setting up the Argentine in the penalty area for the decisive strike. El Shaarawy delivered the final blow in the 90th minute, securing a 3-1 victory for Roma. Despite a momentary lapse that allowed Thauvin to equalize, Roma managed to maintain control throughout the game. With the defeats of Atalanta and Fiorentina, these three points have propelled Roma to fifth place, just three points away from the Champions League zone.

A Slow Start

The match got off to a slow start for both teams, as they were missing key players in the midfield. Mourinho’s side was without Renato Sanches, while Cioffi had to contend with Pereyra’s muscle injury. However, it was Roma who dominated possession, with Udinese constantly defending and looking to counterattack. The first half remained goalless until Dybala’s well-placed free kick found Mancini’s header, giving Roma a 1-0 lead. This goal showcased Roma’s prowess in scoring headers, as they now hold the record for the most headed goals in the league this season (7), surpassing Fiorentina.

A Decisive Finish

Despite falling behind, Udinese maintained their approach, allowing Roma to dictate the game. However, Roma struggled to create clear-cut chances, with Pellegrini’s long-range effort being the closest they came to scoring. In the second half, the pace of the game remained stagnant, but Roma paid the price for their only defensive lapse as Thauvin equalized, taking advantage of a mistake by the Ndicka-Spinazzola partnership. Mourinho quickly made a double substitution, bringing on Azmoun and El Shaarawy for Pellegrini and Spinazzola, respectively. The tactical change paid off as Lukaku and Dybala combined brilliantly in a tight space, with Dybala calmly slotting the ball into the net to give Roma a 2-1 lead. El Shaarawy then sealed the match with a curling shot that left Silvestri helpless. Mourinho can be pleased with his team’s dominant performance at home. The next test awaits.
