Il Tempo (Erika Menghi) It’s lucky he doesn’t lack personality. Dzeko doesn’t just score goals for fun, now he’s a leader in terms of what he says as well. “We won’t win the derby playing like that. We mustn’t be afraid when we’re playing at home. It was hard, we were better than them but we didn’t show that and we didn’t play better than them. But we have the 3 points and it was important to get those. This game is already in the past now, it will be a different story against Lazio: we’ll do everything we can to win.”
La Repubblica (Francesca Ferrazza) Edin Dzeko has decided that he’s never going to stop scoring. In front of 23,000 fans against a modest Pescara side, the striker was head and shoulders above everyone else as he decided the match with 2 goals. It was his 5th brace of the season, in addition to a hat-trick in the Europa League. With 12 league goals and 17 in 20 games in all competitions this season, he is doing better for the Giallorossi than even Batistuta.
Pescara’s hardcore supporters, known as the Rangers, have released a statement in which they say they will not travel to the Stadio Olimpico for Sunday’s match against Roma. The Rangers argue that they cannot ignore the Curva Sud’s ongoing protests as football goes beyond what happens on the pitch.
