It is already the Juventus of Diego.
The club maybe able to complete its remarkable turnaround since its return to Serie A in 2007 by challenging Inter for the Scudetto this year. If they win, it will be in no small part to their Brazilian imports, especially Diego.
Diego’s two goals and Felipe Melo’s injury time score finished off a Roma side which lost two games in a row but not its character. They still have Daniele De Rossi whose cracking shot from 30 yards out will probably make the best 10 goals. It came after Marco Cassatti’s momentary lapse of reason gifted Diego the ball and the Brazilian maestro outran three Juve defenders giving chase before putting the ball past Julio Sergio.
Diego’s trickery disoriented Phillipe Mexes and led to even better second goal. This was a very good Roma side who kept Buffon on his toes. Francisco Totti and Mirko Vucinic both had very clear chances. This should be considered a significant victory.
