Alisson Becker (6): Will be angry to have let in two goals against Benevento, primarily due to defensive lapses in concentration. Other than that, he was not called into action very often as the vast majority of the game was played in Benevento’s half.
Alessandro Florenzi (6): Today’s captain played well but it still doesn’t seem right that he’s playing as a fullback. Just doesn’t look fluid or 100% aware of what a defender should be doing.
Kostas Manolas (5.5): Lost Brignola for the second goal and that summed up the Greek’s night. Fell to the occasion.
Federico Fazio (7): Scored Roma’s first and played better defensively than his partner. Will be key in the Champions League clash with Donetsk.
Aleksander Kolarov (6.5): The Serb earned an assist tonight and was much more influential than Florenzi. Benenvento played him physically, but Kolarov did not disappoint.
Gerson (6.5): A strong showing for the Brazilian who looked comfortable in the midfield tonight even as Benevento swarmed early in the first half. Also assisted Under’s second.
Kevin Strootman (6): Was kept quiet tonight as the Dutchman failed to rev up to full song. Roma need him to make more of an impact, although this new formation raises doubts about his future impact.
Cengiz Under (8.5): What a night for the Turk! An assist and two goals to his name, including a stunner for his side’s fourth.
Diego Perotti (7): The Argentine moved centrally and took Benevento’s defense head on. Earned an assist as well. Strong showing overall.
Stephan El Shaarawy (5.5): A little bit of a drop from the Faraone, he failed to get on the scoresheet during today’s onslaught. Will hope for better against Shakhtar Donetsk.
Edin Dzeko (7.5): A really good game from the Bosnian who not only scored a goal but also made a major impact with his runs and creating space. Under can indirectly thank him for his second.
Gregoire Defrel (7): Scored his first goal as a Giallorosso via a penalty kick.
Daniele De Rossi (N/A): Made only a cameo.
Patrick Schick (N/A): Made only a cameo.
