Posted on | September 17, 2008 | No Comments

After 3-1 lose against Palermo, Roma suffered another defeat 2-1, this time in Champions League against Cluj.
After fighting for the title until last game with Inter last year, Roma has a disastrous start this year.



Roma took the lead after Panucci’s goal, but after that Cluj took control of the game.
The Romanians showed no fear in Group A opener.Cullio turned the match in their favor after two beautiful goals.
It’s a superb victory for a team who played in Romanian third division, five or six years ago.
One notable thing is that Roma has a lot of injured players, especially in defence. Also some players have just recovered and they are not fit to play at maximum capacity, most notable Totti and Taddei. Even in this conditions it’s a painful lose for a team that aims the trophy.
Another reason for this failure could be that Roma players are not concentrating the entire match and they are underestimating the opposition.
One thing is sure, Spalletti has to find a solution until is not too late.
