Roma Player Ratings vs Torino: Mourinho and Dybala Cause Late Drama

In Roma’s 1-1 draw with Torino, Jose Mourinho was sent off, and Paulo Dybala made a dramatic super sub appearance. For much of the match, the Giallorossi put on a dreadful attacking display and struggled to create many chances. As noted by the Paramount+ broadcast crew, the hosts were too reliant on individual skill, often booting the ball downfield and hoping Tammy Abraham or Nicolo Zaniolo would create a play.

Rui Patricio – 7

While Torino failed to frequently test the goalkeeper, Patricio had a nice game. His best save was a diving interception on a cross that would have been an easy tap-in.

Chris Smalling – 8

Once again, Smalling put in a great shift on the backline. He was dominant in the air and cut out several of Torino’s chances early on.

Gianluca Mancini – 7

Mancini also had a solid day in the air, with his defending in the first half likely preventing a second goal.

Roger Ibanez – 6

Ibanez made no serious mistakes, but he occasionally allowed Aleksei Miranchuk too much space between the lines.

Mehmet Zeki Celik – 5.5

Celik made a handful of defensive contributions, effectively shutting down Mergim Vojvada on the left wing. However, his offensive game was lacking, and he seemed out of sync with Cristian Volpato.

Nicola Zalewski – 6

Zalewski showed off impressive skill and a high work rate on the left wing. However, like many of his teammates, he did not do enough in the final third, as the attackers did not receive nearly enough service.

Bryan Cristante – 6

In an exceptionally average match, Cristante did not do much to stand out. He played decently in front of the defense, but he was unimpressive when in possession.

Mady Camara – 6.5

In the first half, Camara seemed to be the only Roma player capable of progressing the ball into dangerous areas of the pitch. He was collected when in possession, but a yellow card forced him out of the match early on.

Cristian Volpato – 5

During his 45 minutes on the pitch, Volpato was not at his best. He struggled on the right against Alessandro Buongiorno and did not get on the ball enough in the final third. At halftime, Stephan El Sharaawy replaced the midfielder.

Nicoló Zaniolo – 5

Despite flashing at times in the final third, Zaniolo had a night to forget. In the first half, he missed a prime chance after Abraham found him open in the box, and he struggled to overcome Koffi Djidji’s strong defensive presence.

Tammy Abraham – 6.5

Roma’s poor offensive showing was not due to a lack of effort by Abraham. The forward set up numerous attempts for his cohorts while not receiving enough service himself.


Stephan El Sharaawy – 7

El Sharaawy injected life into Roma after his introduction at halftime. He was able to connect the midfield and the attack and helped mount a late comeback.

Nemanja Matic – 7

Along with the other substitutes, Matic’s introduction markedly improved Roma’s momentum. After Dybala fired a shot off the crossbar, the Serbian scored a screamer in added time to equalize for his side.

Andrea Belotti – 4

Belotti’s one significant play in the match was a missed penalty in the 91st minute.

Paulo Dybala – 7.5

Dybala’s comeback was huge for Roma, as he singlehandedly brought the Giallorossi offense back from the dead. His late shot that rebounded off the crossbar ultimately created the equalizer for the hosts.

Benjamin Tahirovic – N/A
