The months keep rolling, and Roma keeps winning. The capital city side have not lost in twelve straight matches in all competitions after this latest streak of three wins, strengthening their Scudetto credentials, pushing forth in the Coppa Italia, and even beginning to make a case for themselves in the Champions League.
The month started out with an away fixture against Sassuolo. Domenico Berardi, who had just recently signed with the Giallorossi from Sassuolo, did get a chance to score against his old club off of the bench. It was his ex-teammate Jasmin Kurtic's own goal that ended up sinking the Neroverdi, however, and though the Romans struggled, they managed a 1-0 win.
The next match was of paramount importance. Having fallen at the First Knockout Round in last year's competition to Barcelona, AS Roma was certainly looking forward to having to play only Celtic this time around. A brilliant attacking performance from Totti's men, including Berardi's first goal for the club, led the Italian champions to a 4-1 win, silencing Celtic Park.
The final game of the month was dominated by one player; Miralem Pjanic. Last year's Serie A Player of the Year hasn't been quite as prolific as last season, when he managed 13 goals and 20 assists, but showed that he is still one of the world's best by laying on four assists for his teammates in their 5-0 demolition of Parma.
At the end of February, Roma find themselves in quite a comfortable position. Thirteen points clear in the league and a 3 goal cushion to take back to the Stadio Olimpico in Europe, this might just be the season that Rome reconquers Europe after all...
