Three takeaways from Frosinone 0-3 AS Roma: De Rossi evolution continues and on loan Juventus youngsters star

A 3-0 win over Frosinone continues coach Daniele De Rossi's impressive audition as Roma coach, as Juventus loanee Dean Huijsen scored the opening goal of their Matchday 25 encounter at the Stadio Benito Stripe.


AS Roma‘s impressive form under Daniele De Rossi continued, as they took advantage of Frosinone’s recent poor form and were 3-0 victors at the Stadio Benito Stirpe on Matchday 25 of the 2023/24 Serie A campaign.

The Canarini threatened the visitors goal a few times, but Roma struck first through loanee Dean Huijsen on 37 minutes. Eventually the Giallorossi’s found a second, when Sardar Azmoun was quickest to pounce on a rebound and Leandro Paredes tucked home a third from the penalty spot.

With five wins in seven games since De Rossi took charge of the side, Il Lupi once again look like credible contenders for a Champions League qualification spot.

Could expansive style under De Rossi secure permanent stay at Roma?

The general perception of Roma under Jose Mourinho was that the team aligned with the Portuguese’s pragmatic playing style and were potentially quite a boring side to watch, but one that could, and would, get results.

Under De Rossi, though, the Giallorossi have become a much more attractive side to watch and their principles are clear to see. High risk, high reward, with a noticeable aim to play out from the back and at a higher tempo.

Perhaps this is often the approach under temporary coaches, releasing the shackles of a side previously stifled by the previous man in charge. Particularly if Mourinho. Regardless, though, De Rossi has Roma playing some attractive football, and if it continues, there is a convincing argument for his stay to become permanent.

Juventus loanees on both sides look set for impressive futures

Despite a lot of more experienced players on show, it was two on loan Juventus youngsters who stood out, with Dean Huijsen scoring the first goal of the evening and Canarini attacker Matias Soule creating several issues for the Roma defence.

The defender’s goal was an extraordinary example of a modern defender and will have his parent club watching his progress with the Giallorossi closely, after carrying the ball from his own half and dispatching a venomous 20-yard strike into the far corner.

Although Frosinone failed to convert the chances created by Soule, the future looks bright for the pair of Bianconeri talents and, having taken so confidently to Serie A, the Turin club may choose to include them in their first-team squad next term. If not, sell them for a tidy profit.

Frosinone slide further towards the relegation battle

It has been a weird season for Frosinone. They originally started positively, impressing many with their results, and were punching well above their weight in the early stages of the season.

However, they expectedly could not keep up that form and are now edging dangerously close to the relegation zone, and the dropping into Serie B an ever-increasing possibility.

Eusebio di Francesco’s side have now conceded 52 goals this season, six more than 19th-placed Cagliari, and if they do not stop shipping goals soon, they will go down, with them continuing to struggle in front of goal.
