After the 10-man Benevento fought against Roma for a precious point, Pippo Inzaghi hailed his "lions". "It feels like we won."

Kamil Glik was sent off in 57th minutes but Benevento players demonstrated a defensive masterclass.

“We were lions tonight. I am so proud, as it feels like we won, having held out with 10 against 11 with a Roma side that could introduce Dzeko, El Shaarawy and Pedro off the bench,”



announced to

Sky Sport Italia.

“If you don’t play like this against Roma, you will concede five goals. We knew that we’d get opportunities on the counter, which we did, but obviously once we went down to 10 men before the hour mark, I thought we had no chance."


came back after walking off in the final minutes, then he was sent off for wandering outside his technical area.

“I was angry, because it would’ve been truly unfair if we were left empty-handed after this performance. I even introduced Roberto Insigne because not only did it feel as if we weren’t running any risks at the back, we could even win it.

“If we just defend, we won’t be able to survive in Serie A. I’d told the lads at half-time that we could get all three points.

“We knew it would be a struggle against Roma, but also that Gianluca Lapadula could break away and cause them problems. Down to 10 for over half-an-hour, we’ll take it.”
