Roma Women claim draw against Juventus to stay three points behind

Roma Women came from behind to claim a 1-1 draw away at Juventus in their top-of-the-table battle on Saturday.

Going into the game with the prospect of overtaking Juventus to confirm their role in the title race, Alessandro Spugna chose an unchanged lineup from the one that had beaten Inter most recently.

Roma fell behind in the first half due to an Angelica Soffia own goal after 11 minutes.

But Paloma Lazaro levelled things up for Roma just after the hour mark, assisted by Emilie Haavi, to set up a tense finale.

Ultimately, neither team could get a second goal, meaning Roma remain three points behind Juventus in the table. They also keep a three-point cushion above their nearest challengers for the Champions League space that would come with a second-place finish, which has been the realistic target all along.

Six games are still to go in the league this season, meaning there is still chance to catch Juve, but it would require the leaders dropping points elsewhere.
