Serie A, Roma-Monza 3-0: two goals for Dybala and 100 goals

The Giallorossi dominate and fly in the lead: double for the Argentine, Ibanez signs the trio

Evening to be framed for the Rome from Mourinho in the midweek advance of the fourth matchday of Serie A. The Portuguese coach finds a super Dybala and the momentary solitary top of the standings. It is in fact a brace from the Argentine (who reaches 100 goals in Serie A) in the first half, together with the goal of Ibanez in the second half, to roll out the 3-0 Monza and condemn Stroppa to last place with still zero points after four games. Ten points instead for the Giallorossi.

THE MATCH
Roma takes their third victory in the league and rises to ten points confirming the excellent start of the season, temporarily taking the lead alone in the standings. Opposite situation for Monza which remains very last with zero points and Stroppa’s bench begins to shake. Match already closed in the first half thanks to the Dybala-show: the Argentine is the author of a brace within a quarter of an hour between 18 ‘and 32’ and conquers the Giallorossi audience. Ready go and Abraham launches Dybala with a nice header, the former Juve flies towards the opponent’s goal and closes with his left at the far post. Not even the time for Monza to organize a response, which again Dybala doubles this time in robbery with a slip on a shot by Abraham rejected by Di Gregorio. Cynical Mourinho’s team that finalized both major chances of the first half, in the second half even the trio arrives at 60 ‘which definitively breaks the hopes of Brianza. Good third time for Ibanez from Pellegrini’s corner and a header. Stroppa changes the whole attack but his team does not reverse the march, then as the pace slows down and Roma administers without problems. The only emotions before the final whistle were a chipped crossbar from Machin and Belotti who, as soon as he entered his debut with the new Capitoline jersey, engages Di Gregorio. Then the out of tune of the Giallorossi evening: the muscle injury of El Shaarawy who leaves the field in recovery, but the Special One can smile anyway tonight.

REPORT CARDS
Cristante 6.5 –
Security in midfield with dynamism and filter in front of the defense, also useful in the insertions in the offensive phase
Abraham 7 – Excellent understanding with Dybala, participates in the first two goals of the Argentine and does a precious job up front
Sensi 6 – Called to take the reins of the Brianza midfield, he tries with good feet and gives the rhythms to his teammates
Petagna 5 – Too alone in attack, poorly served, he tries to elbow and work with the body but the results do not come

THE STATISTICS
• Roma find themselves with 10 points in the standings after their first four Serie A matches of the season for the first time since 2014/15 (12 out of 12 in that case, with Rudi Garcia at the helm).
• Monza have lost their first four matches of this Serie A; the last team to have suffered four defeats in their first four games in the top flight was Benevento in 2017/18.
• 50% of the goals scored by Roma in this league (3/6) came from a corner; since José Mourinho sits on the bench of the Giallorossi (2021/22), the Capitoline team is the team that has made the most from this game situation in Serie A: 14.
• With two goals against Monza, Paulo Dybala has become the eighth player to touch the threshold of 100 goals and 50 assists in Serie A since Opta has collected the details of the winning passes (since 2004/05).
• The last of Paulo Dybala’s 14 multiple goals in Serie A was on 7 April 2018 with Juventus, at Benevento, also in that case of the newly promoted team.
• Monza have become Paulo Dybala’s 28th victim in Serie A: since his first goal in the competition (November 2012), only Dzeko (29), Immobile and Zapata (both 32) have counted more.
