Inside the Numbers: Roma’s winning streak
   November 1, 2013 (5:33 AM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post
 

If you follow this site on a regular basis, you know that I am into numbers and history.  Here is what I was able to find online about Roma’s current winning streak.  A lot of these numbers come from the Spanish stat guru Mr. Chip (or what I can find online).

* Roma’s 10-game winning streak to start the season is the longest in Serie A history.  The previous longest streak was eight by Juventus, done in 1930-31 and 1985-86.  Juventus actually won its first nine games in 2005-06, but that record was expunged by the match-fixing scandal from that season.

* Roma is the third team all-time from one of the top five European leagues (England, Spain, Italy, Germany and France) to start a season by winning each of it first 10 games.  Tottenham began the 1960-61 season with 11 straight wins while Manchester United began the 1985-86 season with 10 consecutive wins.

* Going back to last season, Roma has won each of its last 11 games in Serie A action, tying the club’s longest streak in top-flight play and the second-longest winning streak in Serie A history.  Roma also won 11 in a row during the 2005-06 season.  The longest winning streak in Serie A history is 17 by Inter Milan, set during the 2006-07 season, which is also the longest winning streak by any team from one of the top five European leagues.

* Roma has only given up one goal this season, becoming the first Serie A team to surrender only one goal through its first 10 games since Cagliari in 1966-67.  And Roma hasn’t given up a goal in each of its last seven Serie A games, tying the longest streak in club history.

    Really off topic.

    How long is Josh Gatt out?

  2. Matt says:

    The early reports were November-December if I remember correctly.

  3. Gregory says:

    Thanks,

    I’m not saying USA needs him or he will even be ready for Brazil, but
    currently he only needs to be out Eddie Johnson or Brek Shea for a spot on the bench.

    Bedoya seems to be earning the starting spot.

  4. Dirk says:

    Problem is Gatt won’t have any qualifiers to impress in. He’ll have January camp and 1 or 2 friendlies. For the WC, he’s out on the tiles I’m afraid.
