Italian Serie A AS Roma, led by coach Jose Mourinho, is creating a new wind with a set piece.

As of the 7th, AS Roma is running 3rd in Serie A for the 2022/23 season. With a record of 12 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses (40 points), it is next to Napoli (56 points) and Inter Milan (43 points). He scored 28 goals and conceded 18 goals.

It is noteworthy that the set-piece rate during scoring is quite high.

‘Football Italia’ said, “AS Roma is proving how powerful set-pieces, especially corner kicks, can be in football.” According to the media, AS Roma has scored 7 goals from corner kicks, 2 goals from indirect free kicks and 3 goals from penalty kicks in Serie A this season.

This means that set piece goals accounted for 42.9% of total goals. The importance of set pieces in soccer is always emphasized, but it is unusual to record a scoring rate that is close to that of open play.

The media added, “That doesn’t mean that AS Roma takes a lot of corners. The number of corner kicks is 7th in Serie A.” 온라인바카라

A typical example is the dramatic 2-2 draw by scoring consecutive goals with corner kicks and free kicks at the end of the second half against AC Milan, which was heavily defeated on the 8th of last month.

In the most recent game against Empoli on the 5th, Paolo Dybala scored two goals from a set piece through a kick and won 2-0.

Coach Mourinho traditionally builds a deep defense and uses counterattacks or set-pieces to score and win football. Mourinho’s style was well displayed at AS Roma this season.

However, in terms of AS Roma’s low score itself, the high set-piece scoring rate can be interpreted as meaning poor open play.

AS Roma scores significantly fewer goals compared to 37-51 goals scored by other teams in the 1st-6th places.

On the other hand, the number of conceded points is not much different from Napoli (15 conceded) and 4th place Lazio (17 conceded).
