Egypt International Mohamed Salah played 82 minutes in AS Roma’s impressive 4-1 win over FC Viktoria Plzen in the Europa League. 

Roma broke the deadlock in the 11th minute when Dzeko scored from a tight angle inside the box after turning around his defender.

However, FC Viktoria Plzen were quick to respond as they equalized 8 minutes later. Roma continued to press for a second goal but chances were missed by Dzeko, Salah and Nainggolan.

In the 61st minute, Dzeko completed his brace with a strong header from a Rudiger cross. Right after the goal, Perotti came into the match for Iturbe.

Eight minutes before fulltime, Perotti scored a wonderful rabona goal. In an attempt to see through the game, De Rossi came on for Salah right after the goal.

Dzeko completed his hattrick in the 88th minute leading Roma to a 4-1 win.

This results ensures that Roma will go through to the next stage of the competition as top of their group with 11 points from 5 games.

Roma will return to the Serie A to take on Pescara on Sunday November 27.
