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.
