Santi Giménez was reunited with the goal, but Feyenoord was eliminated from the UEFA Europa League – La Opinion


This Thursday Santiago Giménez ended his drought of 7 games without scoring and put an end to malaria with a goal that opened the scoring at the Olympic Stadium just in the 5th minute of the return game between the Feyenoord and the AS Roma.

However, the bad news for the “Bebote” fans and the Dutch team was that Roma equalized in regulation time, forced extra time and eliminated the Dutch team from the eleven steps in the round of 32 of the UEFA Europa League.

The Roman team had the home advantage in this finale of the series, because the score was tied 1-1 after the first leg in Holland, but Giménez’s early goal made the game uphill for the Italians and made them suffer until the end. final.

The goal that ended the Mexican striker’s 610-minute drought came unexpectedlynot only because it was at the beginning of the match, but because it was with the shoulder in unusual circumstances since, On a rebound, after an attempted clearance by defender El Shasrawy, Giménez managed to put his shoulder in and pushed the ball into the back of the net. in a play that ended with all the Roma players asking for a hand; However, the whistler declared the goal as valid.

But Roma had the home field factor in their favor, without a single Dutch fan in the stands after the city of Rome banned the entry of Feyenoord fans following recent altercations and clashes between the two – there were no fans in the first leg. Romanists in De Kuip – and immediately got back into the party.

All thanks to a shot by Lukaku that took the visitors’ defense under the sticks. From that moment on, those led by Daniele De Rossi were better in the first 45 minutes. Much superior, fresher, with an unleashed Paulo Dybala who brought order to the midfield.

The Argentine led his team to the tie. With his pause, with his success, with his poise and his precision, Roma grew until, after a great ball delivery, El Shaarawy received open wide, looked up and found Pellegrini on the balcony of the area. The captain put her in the squad in the 15th minute and the “Giallorossi” definitively took command.

But all the dominance and superiority of the ‘Loba’ in the first half gave way to a much more even second act, without a clear dominator. A second 45 minutes in which the game could have gone either way and in which fatigue took its toll, leading the duel to inevitable overtime.

The forces were scarce in extra time and Feyenoord was slightly superior in the first 15 minutes, but the entry of Angeliño on the left side gave strength to De Rossi’s men, who ended up being superior, deserving of the victory and with a double chance of Lukaku who almost avoided penalties.

However, Neither Rome nor Feyenoord escaped the eleven-meter trial.

Paredes scored the first for the Romans, as did Ueda for those from Rotterdam. Lukaku missed his, but Svilar saved him by stopping Hancko’s. Cristante put him in the squad and Svilar stopped again, this time Jahanbakhsh. Aouar did not fail and Roma had him in hand. Hartman scored, as did Zalewski, who decided with his shot. Roma returns to the round of 16.
