SK Slovan Vs. AS Roma, Europa League Qualifying: All Zeros At The Half

You know it's that time of year again, time for Europa, when you're stuck seeking streams on sites you've never heard of, and then glued to the computer screen to watch a jumpy picture in a language you don't understand. Or, of course, you just ignore Europe's other tournament. But who can resist Slovan Bratislava hosting AS Roma? I know I couldn't.

Surprisingly enough, the match has been fairly even in the first half - although that might be due to the fact that Roma appear to have started their third string squad. The Italian side have had the majority of the possession, but could do nothing with it in front of the Slovan goal, constantly sending the ball just wide of keeper Matúš Putnocký.

Then again, when the home side manages to get the ball, they often seem to trip over it, perhaps in an attempt to execute a tricky maneuver, or perhaps simply because they've, well, tripped. If it's out of fancy-ness, new coach Vladimir Weiss needs to slap that out of them during the break - it's time to simply get in a goal, because visiting Rome without one will certainly result in Slovan being dumped out of Europa (and this is being said by a Slovan supporter).
