Full Time – Feyenoord 1-1 AS Roma

Whilst the score-line may suggest a dull, uninteresting game, that was far from the case today at ‘De Kuip’. Both teams played some decent football at times (Feyenoord more often than Roma), and, from a tactical point of view, both teams nullified the threat of the other team effectively. Roma limited the space in between the lines and Feyenoord limited Roma’s ability to counter-attack and punish them that way. I hope you have enjoyed my coverage today and hope to see you again soon!
