Roma received the red card at nap time at the start of the first overtime. Both defender Gianluca Mancini and goalkeeper Pau López were sent to the locker rooms. Coach Paulo Fonseca was given a chance to change things around. Daniel Fuzato was given a chance to change things around. And that was the sixth substitution, one more of the five substitutions allowed.
The administrative error probably continues without consequences, as the Romans have been eliminated. But it’s not the club’s first mistake. The club also left Amadou Diawara on the list of 23-year-olds this season, although he had already celebrated his 23rd birthday. It caused the first league match against Hellas Verona to be lost 3-0 after the error occurred.
AS Roma currently ranks fourth in Serie A.
