Romelu Lukaku and Lorenzo Pellegrini scored goals near the end of the first half, Paulo Dybala’s incredible free kick in the 63rd minute, and a late penalty shoot by Leandro Paredes gave the U-Power Stadium the three points.
After De Rossi replaced Jose Mourinho in January, Roma had won six of their last seven league games. In the 87th minute, Andrea Carboni scored a wonderful consolation goal for 11th-place Monza with a long-range rocket.

Roma is in fifth place, one point behind Bologna, who hold the final Champions League position. On Sunday night, Roma will play their top-four opponents, Atalanta. Under De Rossi, Roma has scored 20 goals in the league.

“I’m not so much leading a team of players as I am leading a group of people. When I see something that bothers me, I try to be straightforward and honest,” De Rossi told DAZN.

“I’m really happy to be working with them, both for how they perform and how they make me feel.” After Mourinho was abruptly fired, De Rossi was an unexpected pick to take over at Roma, but he has proven to be a capable manager thus far.

Roma’s only league loss under their previous captain occurred against Inter Milan, who are currently leading the league, 4-2 despite a strong effort from the team.

The victory on Saturday served as ideal preparation for Thursday’s first leg of their Europa League round of sixteen match against Brighton, which will take place in front of a jam-packed and boisterous Stadio Olimpico.

Under Mourinho, Roma made it to two straight European finals. Mourinho is adored by the Roma supporters for bringing the team’s 14-year trophy drought to an end in 2022 with the first-ever Europa Conference League. Star forwards Lukaku and Dybala will be happy for De Rossi after their impressive performance in northern Italy.

In addition to scoring his ninth goal of the year and his 12th in the league thus far, Dybala’s free-kick also set up Lukaku’s first goal in Serie A since De Rossi’s season-opening victory over Verona.

Captain Pellegrini told DAZN, “If this is just the beginning, just think about what this Roma team can be if we keep going like this.”

It greatly increases our faith. Playing a match that significant following a victory enables you to approach it appropriately.

“In the past few years, we’ve had some amazing adventures in Europe. It’s never easy; there are always strong sides looking to play football. But one thing is for sure: we’ll give it our all.”

Subway teams Salernitana and Udinese had earlier drawn 1-1, and seventh-place Fiorentina’s hopes of qualifying for Europe ended in a goalless draw against 10-man Torino.
