Tactical Mistakes Jose Mourinho Made As Bodo/Glimt Thrash Roma in Europa Conference League match

Roma suffered their first defeat of the Europa Conference League season today. Jose Mourinho side conceded six goals against Bodo/Glimt today and ended up losing 6-1. After winning their first two group stage fixtures, Jose Mourinho's side lost to Bodo/Glimt today. Despite today's result, Roma are still in a good position in their group table. They'll have to win their next games if they want to finish at the top of their group table. Here are the tactical mistakes Jose Mourinho made as Roma lost to Bodo/Glimt.

1. Starting Borja Mayoral Ahead Of Tammy Abraham

Tammy Abraham has been Roma's first choice forward since he made his move from Chelsea. Borja Mayoral is Jose Mourinho's alternative in the forward position, the Spanish forward doesn't make appearances in big games. Jose Mourinho would have thought Bodo/Glimt was an easy team to defeat but he was wrong, Borja Mayoral shouldn't have led Roma's attack in today's match.

Jose Mourinho underestimated Bodoe/Glimt and suffered the consequences. Tammy Abraham came on as a substitute in the second half and made an immediate impact, the Englishman might not have made any goal contributions but he was active in attack. Tammy Abraham has been a reliable goal scorer since he joined Roma, Jose Mourinho needs to give the Englishman more playing time for him to make an impact in the team.

2. Starting Amadou Diawara Ahead Of Lorenzo Pellegrini

Lorenzo Pellegrini has been Roma's most productive player this season, the Italian midfielder should have been in today's start lineup but Jose Mourinho chose Amadou instead. Without Pellegrini, Roma lacked that creative abilities, the mood changed for Roma after Lorenzo Pellegrini came on as a substitute. Pellegrini would have made more impact than Amadou did if he had made it to the starting lineup.
