Four facts after Roma Women’s 2-1 Scudetto Pool win at Inter

Roma Women remain on course to defend their Serie A Femminile title after a late win over Inter on Good Friday.

Facing the only team that had beaten them in the league all season, Roma wrapped up the win with a goal in the 89th minute to preserve their double-figures points lead over Juventus.

Here are four facts worth highlighting from the win over Inter.

Simultaneous centuries for Bartoli and Greggi

Both captain Elisa Bartoli and fellow hometown hero Giada Greggi reached the milestone of 100 Serie A appearances in Roma colours on Friday.

The two founding members of the Roma squad – who were also goalscorers on the day the Giallorosse won the league for the first time last season – have both now represented their beloved team 100 times in Serie A.

Giugliano reaches Spugna century

Another centurion of sorts was Manuela Giugliano, who was making her 100th appearance of the Spugna era for Roma, to add to her previous 41 under Betty Bavagnoli.

In doing so, Giugliano has become the first ever Roma player to make 100 appearances under a single coach, pipping Giada Greggi (currently on 95 apps under Spugna), Benedetta Glionna (94) and Elena Linari (92) to that claim.

While she was the 10th most-used player by Bavagnoli, despite only arriving ahead of Roma’s second season, and overall Roma’s fourth highest appearance maker so far, Giugliano is leading the way as the most frequently seen player with Spugna at the helm.

Troelsgaard becomes oldest scorer

The match winner was midfielder Sanne Troelsgaard, who scored her first goal for the club since arriving from Reading in the winter on her eighth appearance.

Troelsgaard has only started one match for Roma so far and was a substitute on this occasion as well, but made her mark by opening her account for the club.

At the age of 35 years and nine months, Troelsgaard has become the oldest scorer for Roma Women, overtaking Vanessa Bernauer who was 33 and eight months old when she set the previous record in December 2021.

Funnily enough, the previous oldest scorer this season had been Saki Kumagai, who had earlier extended her record at the age of 33 and five months with the opener.

Wins at every venue

As stated earlier, Inter were the only team to have taken any points off Roma this season after the 2-0 reverse upon the last visit in January.

Thus, by winning at the same stadium now the Scudetto Pool has started, Roma have now won at every ground they have played at in the league this season.
