Roma extended their unbeaten run to six matches after they sent off Cagliari on a 1-3 finish. The side only needed Mattia Destro to seal the winner, delivering a hat-trick that was nearly converted into a clean sheet if not for the persistent late effort of their opponents. The three points obtained meant that Giallorossi are now close to within eight points of league frontrunners Juventus. The difference is still quite big, but at least Rudi Garcia’s men are able to give pressure on the potential champions.
Unexpectedly, Atalanta failed to grab the silverware from struggling squad Sassuolo. Not only did the match steal them of three points, but it also rendered them goalless with an excellent brace from Sassuolo’s Nicola Sansone and outstanding saves by Gianluca Pegolo. The upset served as La Dea’s first in eight matches and further veered them away from barging into the esteemed top six.
