Player Ratings – Roma 2-2 Inter: Kolarov Penalty Denies Inter In Another Rocchi Masterclass

Roma were missing a number of players but they put in a spirited performance against Inter, who twice went ahead thanks to Keita and Icardi but were pegged back. Referee Gianluca Rocchi also managed to irk both sets of supporters.

Samir Handanovic – 7: Both goals conceded were virtually unstoppable. Handanovic made some great saves prior to them. In the first half he stopped everything.

Danilo D’Ambrosio – 7.5 : Almost perfect in defence and for once contributed in attack. All his runs and crosses proved to be troublesome for Roma. Beautiful assist for Keita.

Stefan de Vrij – 7: If he continues this way, surely he will be amongst the best free transfers of the season. Can’t blame him for any of the goals. Ball playing defender.

Milan Skriniar – 6.5: Zaniolo and Schick caused him some trouble. Never lost his sense of calm and always did the best for the team. Consistent. Reliable. Leader.

Kwadwo Asamoah – 7: Stable as always. Younger players tried to match up with his speed and strength. They had no chance. Decent attacking runs in the first half.

Marcelo Brozovic – 6.5:  Unfortunate to concede a harsh penalty. Covered every single blade of grass at the Olimpico. The midfield general we have been looking for.

Borja Valero – 6.5: Borja has rolled back the years and looks 10 years younger to other midfielders.  Too bad his shooting lets him down. Maybe he improves it?

Ivan Perisic – 5: Not much to say but he could have made the same impact in eight mins instead of playing 80 mins. This feels like Candreva from last season.

Joao Mario – 6.5: Did the basics right but in attack he never could get the perfect pass or cross in. Would be interesting to see him play in a deeper role.

Keita Balde – 7: Sometimes the best emails are the ones you don’t receive. Thank you Senegal’s FA. Always created trouble for Roma, should’ve stayed on.

Mauro Icardi – 6: Tried to get involved and got some service today. Didn’t do much before and after a beautifully taken header from Brozo’s corner.

Matteo Politano – 6.5: Some good impact off the bench today for our best winger. His pace caused some problems but could never get a shot away to trouble Olsen.

Vecino – N/A: Brought on too late. We missed some steel in midfield to stop their moves or to just create some superiority. Maybe he starts vs Juventus?

Lautaro –  N/A: Just like Vecino was brought on too late. It’s nice to see Spalletti try to play Mauro and Lautaro together finally. Lets hope they get more time together.

Luciano Spalletti – 5: We can’t always be carrying a player who is out of form. Should have sorted the defensive midfield after we went into the lead. Late subs.

Rocchi – 4: Only Gianluca Rocchi can make both sides unhappy in a game. Roma have every right to be angry. Many minor decisions went against Inter too.

Inter – 6: A draw away to a third place rival is good, but we need to stop playing so deep and falling back the moment we go into the lead. Onwards!


Agree? Disagree? Who do you think was Inter’s best player of the night?
