Italian club Cesena crashed to a defeat in the latest match against Roma. Cesena were coming into the match struggling down at the bottom of the table.
They would have been extremely aware of the fact that a match against Roma would always be tough in this situation. However, Cesena would not have initiated such a horrible performance given the fact that they had won a game recently. Roma were coming into the match on the back of a four game winning run, which has put them back into the contention for the Champions League positions. The same cannot be said of Cesena who are struggling down to the foot of the table.
Roma captain Francesco Totti created history by becoming the all-time top scorer in the Italian Serie A. Francesco Totti went ahead of Nordahl’s record of 210 goals for AC Milan. The Swedish striker is regarded as one of the greatest ever players in the Italian Serie A and Francesco Totti expressed delight at being able to pass this landmark. Roma thrashed Cesena 5-1, a match in which Francesco Totti grabbed the opening two goals to give him the advantage over Nordahl’s record. Francesco Totti now has 211 goals in the Italian top-flight.
Roma were able to go into the cruise control mode after only 9 min on the board. Fabio Borini provided with the third goal for Roma within 9 min. Even though Cesena looked to spark a comeback through Eder a few minutes later, any hopes of coming back into the match eventually vanished after Juan and Pjanic secured victory for Roma. Luis Enrique’s job was on the line only a few weeks ago, but he seems to have turned the corner quite spectacularly, as Roma can now be regarded as challenges for the Champions League positions.
