Work to do at Roma

Considering all the injuries and that they nearly gifted Inter the win, Roma will probably just be thankful for a point in the end.

It allows them to continue their good run of form, with Roma having won seven of their last nine games in all competitions. However, the lack of killer intent in the final third against Inter was a rather worrying sign.

“We got our choices wrong in the final third, but it was still a good game. Our intention was to play and hold the ball, I feel we did that and at times were in total control of the match,” Fonseca told Sky Sport Italia.

“The team improved a great deal in all areas, but we do need to work still on the final attacking movements. That is the area where we really have to do better.”

But the Giallorossi are now at risk of falling out of the Serie A top-four come to the end of the weekend. They currently sit just a point above Cagliari, who will play Sassuolo this Sunday, in fourth-place.
