On Monday evening, AS Roma defeated Salernitana, the lowest-ranked team in Serie A, by a score of 2-1, so moving up to the fifth position.
Despite the fact that they have played one more game, Roma are now only one point behind Atalanta in the fourth and final slot for the UEFA Champions League.
Daniele De Rossi, who took over as manager earlier this month after Jose Mourinho was fired, received a substantial lift from the victory. De Rossi’s contract is set to expire at the conclusion of the current season.
A finish in the top four of the standings would increase the likelihood of him receiving a permanent appointment to the position of Roma’s head coach.
It appears that Salernitana is set to fail if they do not swiftly recover their form because they have only won one of their last five league games. They reached the end of the game with 12 points, and they are currently six points away from safety.
It was Paulo Dybala, who had been linked with a move away during the January transfer window, who broke the deadlock with a penalty kick five minutes after the restart. The strike sent the goalkeeper the wrong way. All three goals in the game came in the second half.
15 minutes later, Lorenzo Pellegrini scored the second goal by tucking in a cross at the back post. At that point, the visitors appeared to be in a comfortable position.
The away team managed to hold on for all three points despite Grigoris Kastanos’s unmarked header that brought them within one goal of the home team at the 70-minute mark.
The next game for Salernitana is on Sunday, and they will be playing Torino. On the other hand, Roma will be playing Cagliari at home the following Monday.
