Roma Women remain top of the Serie A Femminile table after beating Inter 2-0 at Stadio Tre Fontane on Sunday.
Giada Greggi put Roma ahead by connecting with an Emilie Haavi cross, before a Lisa Alborghetti own goal doubled the advantage after a low cross by Evelyne Viens aimed at Valentina Giacinti.
Here are three facts after the match.
Three clean sheets in a row
After Camelia Ceasar kept clean sheets against Pomigliano and Vorskla Poltava, this time it was Tinja-Riikka Korpela who prevented any goals by the opponents to give Roma a third clean sheet in a row.
It is the 10th time in their history they have achieved three consecutive clean sheets, while at the other end they have scored 10 goals in this timeframe.
Their record for consecutive clean sheets is four from October 2022, which were shared equally between Emma Lind and Ceasar.
Giugliano a class above
Roma’s best player on the day was stand-in captain Manuela Giugliano, whose range of passing was exceptional, especially in the first half.
Justifiably presented with the MVP award by the FIGC, she led the way with the most shots (4) and chances created (6).
Her other, non-leading statistics included a pass completion rate of 70.5%, two tackles, three duels won and 65 touches.
Best winning start to a season
Setting the pace as defending champions, Roma have won their first four league games of the new season.
It is their longest streak of victories at the outset of a new Serie A Femminile campaign. Their previous best was three in the 2021-22 season, which was coincidentally stopped by Inter on matchday four.
Since Juventus also have a 100% record at this stage of the season, it will be important for Roma to try and preserve the momentum they have been building as the two main title rivals go neck and neck again.
