Destro scored a fourth-minute header in Roma's win over Chievo on Saturday.

Destro has been stellar to begin this season, as the 23-year-old striker now boasts three goals in four appearances (two starts) thus far. With five shot attempts (four on goal), Destro led Roma in the category, which should inspire manager Rudi Garcia to start him on a more regular basis moving forward.

Destro scored from nearly the middle of the pitch when he found Verona goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini off his line in Roma's 2-0 win Saturday.

It was definitely a goal to remember, and Destro now has two goals in his last two starts for Roma, who face Manchester City in the Champions League on Tuesday and then Juventus in Serie A play on Sunday.

Destro was an unused substitute for Roma's 5-1 drubbing of CSKA Moscow in their opening Champions League group stage match on Wednesday.

Gerinho and Juan Iturbe started up front, with the two players combining for three of Roma's five goals. Destro has started one of Roma's two Serie A matches and he is a fairly unreliable fantasy option given his inconsistent starts.

An appeal by Destro for a reduction in his three-match ban for punching Cagliari's Davide Astori has been denied, Football Italia reports.

Hopefully Destro learns from this mistake.

Destro has been suspended for three matches for punching Cagliari defender Davide Astori over the weekend in a match he scored three goals in, Football Italia reports.

This is not good timing for Destro if he wishes to make a late push for a spot on Italy's World Cup team.

The striker scored twice in Roma's 3-0 win over Sampdoria on Sunday.

This is a good sign for the player who has spent lots of time out injured.

Destro scored his second goal in his second game back-in-action against Milan on Monday.

Destro will be a relatively safe, secure play in matchweek 17. Roma will take on a Catania defense that's replete with struggles lately.

Destro has returned to training after being out for two months and should return to action in April, Football Italia reports.

Destro can perhaps give Roma an extra push as it attempts to get into the UEFA Champions League.
