Roma Women draw with Milan as race for top two stays in their hands

Roma Women came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw with AC Milan on Saturday, preserving their unbeaten run into a ninth game.

Roma went into the game without having lost since their last meeting with Milan, in the Supercoppa Italiana in January.

They could have been on course for that run to end when ex-Roma forward Lindsey Thomas scored for Milan upon her return to Stadio Tre Fontane.

However, Andressa Alves cancelled out the deficit in the second half to ensure Roma earned a share of the spoils.

It means second-placed Roma retain a five-point gap over fourth-placed Milan. And with third-placed Sassuolo also only drawing with Empoli, the race for the Champions League is still in the Giallorosse’s hands.

They face Sassuolo away next week in what will be a crucial match at the business end of the season, with three points separating the two sides.
