Roma: scoring first is better but it does not guarantee victory (Stats)

AS Roma Fans

The Giallorossi often have the right approach to the games but Roma lost important points in the second 45 minutes.

We have often heard that a strong team must start the games with the right mentality. Certainly, this is a key aspect to put the game in your favor and have more chances to bring home the win. But sometimes things didn’t go that way for Roma.

In the first 12 matches of the season, Roma scored first 8 times. Only Cagliari (9), Inter (9), and Juventus (9) did better than the Giallorossi in Italy.

The best European teams in this special ranking are Ajax, PSG, and Chelsea. The Dutch side and the French powerhouse have scored first in 12 out of 13 games (92%). The British team led by club’s legend Lampard is in the third position (10 out of 12 – 83%). It’s interesting to know that Bayern Munich (7/12 – 64%) are currently behind Roma.

In light of that, Roma have the right approach to score first but they are often unable to collect the three points.
