What a stunt Roma pulled!
We are talking, of course, about the Conference League match on Thursday when Roma somehow managed not just to lose in Norway to a modest Bodo/Glimt, but was routed 1-6. Of course, the Conference League is not that important, but not to such an extent.
Perhaps the main reason for the failure in Norway should be considered the match in the previous league round, where Roma faced Juventus. Obviously, the game was very energy-consuming for the Giallorossi and ended in a 0-1 defeat.
Napoli achieved their European goal
The Neapolitans had an unsuccessful start in the Europa League group stage, scoring only 1 point in their two opening games against Spartak and Leicester. Therefore, a third-round home game against Legia Warsaw was crucial for the team. It took Luciano Spalletti's team a long time to open up an unyielding opponent, but finally, they managed to do it, Insigne, Osimhen, and Politano scoring a goal each and the team winning 3-0. Napoli has a much better chance to continue their fight in the Europa League playoffs.
Napoli has a 3-match winning streak over Roma.
