Roma Rues Wasted Chances Against Milan

MOST COMMENTED

AS Roma coach Rudi Garcia rued wasted chances following his team’s 2-2 draw at the San Siro vs. AC Milan on Monday. “We had so many scoring opportunities and usually win in these circumstances, but a point against Milan at San Siro is not a negative thing,” the Frenchman told Sky Sport Italia. USA international Michael Bradley, in for the suspended Miralem Pjanic, was guilty of missing a couple of good chances over the 90 minutes.

“In terms of soccer I have to be disappointed, as when we are in front twice we’ve got to avoid certain mistakes in defense,” Garcia added, but “It was a good Roma performance overall. It’s true that we could’ve done better on the final pass, but we played to win and that is what I want from my team. We scored two goals away to Milan and are normally much more efficient in defense.”

It was the first time since March that the Giallorossi conceded more than one goal in a single game. The result left Roma five points adrift of first-place Juventus, which beat Sassuolo 4-0 on Sunday, thanks to a Carlos Tevez hat trick.

Meanwhile, Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri said the draw against a strong Roma side was a “good result” especially considering Milan’s exertions in the 0-0 draw in the UEFA Champions League against Ajax in midweek. He noted that the arrival of Keisuke Honda up front and Adil Rami in central defense will strengthen his squad in January.
