Krkic Fires Roma to Win
A stunning performance from substitute Bojan Krkic helped Roma record a 2-0 win over Novara. Their two match losing streak had put a lot of pressure on manager Luis Enrique, but this latest victory against Novara brings some much-needed relief. Enrique had Bojan Krkic to thank for the victory, with the former Barcelona striker playing an important role after coming on as a substitute. Former Ligue 1 midfielder Miralem Pjanic set up the impressive goal for Bojan Krkic, who had to just tap in the lobbed pass from the midfielder.
Pablo Osvaldo soon scored to double Roma's lead in the match, which made things extremely comfortable for the team struggling to recapture its former glory. It was the fifth goal of the season for Pablo Osvaldo. However, it was certainly the former Barcelona striker Bojan Krkic who stole the limelight. The striker, aged just 21, was not expected to be amongst the first-team regulars for Roma this season, but he has delivered each time when he has been called upon.
Roma still have a long way to go in the Italian Serie A before they catch title-rivals Juventus, who currently lead the Italian Serie A table with 19 points, while they are closely followed by Udinese and Lazio. Former European Champions Inter Milan are struggling near the bottom of the table after making a horrendous start to the season. This victory was extremely crucial for Roma, as it put them back into the top half of the table. If they continue in the excellent run, they could easily catch Juventus, who are just five points ahead of them.
Roma could have easily conceded a goal when Novara's Filippo Porcari came close to scoring with an effort that hit the post. Other than that, Roma had an easy victory.
