Florenzi 6.5: Goof in defense, he presses very high and shows up regularly forward. Unlucky on the splendid free kick that nearly breaks on the crossbar.

Gabbia 6: The Italian defender suffers from the speed of Abraham and Zaniolo. He remains close to the goal more than his department colleagues. A tidy and a safe match.

Kalulu 6.5: Pierre his aggressive against Roma strikers. Plays very close on Abraham. Kalulu recovers many balls and does not suffer against his opponents despite a notable lack of experience.
