Roma striker Borja Mayoral, on loan from Real Madrid, scored his first goals for the Italian side in a 5-0 demolition job of Romanian outfit Cluj.

Mayoral will hope to force his way into Paulo Fonseca's starting XI with this solid performance.

📷 Mayoral: Match Snapshot

⏱️ 34' Showing good predatory instincts, Mayoral is centrally positioned to convert Bruno Peres' header into the net from a matter of yards. It was the Italian side's third goal of the night, and put the result beyond all doubt.

It was also Mayoral's first goal since joining Roma at the end of the transfer window.

⏱️ 83' The striker adds his second, and Roma's fourth. Finding himself completely unmarked at the back post following a cross from Peres, the Spaniard has time to control the ball, and simply pick his spot.

Mayoral rifles the ball under Cluj keeper Balgradean to make no mistake.

In total Mayoral hit four shots on goal, two on target and scored twice, including six touches of the ball inside the opposition penalty area.

Mayoral: What Next?

Mayoral will hope to gain more playing time, especially in Serie A, off the back of this performance. The striker is currently playing second fiddle to Edin Dzeko, but more performances like this will cause boss Paulo Fonseca food for thought.
