Roma came out as the more effective team as they were seemingly trying to bolster their control. Very significant possession advantages and the way they were moving the ball and communicating with one another. It was an auspicious start for the Roma Milan didn’t seem as precise with the way they were playing. However, AC Milan would manage to muster up a few opportunities.

Pamela Lazaro got on the end of it as she connected with her head but could not accurately place it as her header fired wide. AC Milan did have that early chance but found themselves having difficulty finding themselves in the game. Their passes were incredibly inaccurate, not moving the ball swiftly for the most part. Occasionally they would find themselves on the counterattack, but their movement in the build-up was relatively poor. Less than 10 minutes later, Roma nearly capitalized and probably should have scored. Anna Serturni being the creator, once again slung the ball to Pamela Lazaro. The goalkeeper came out at the last second Lazaro spread the ball towards Bernadetta Glionna, who had a clean look at a nearly empty she fired on target but hit the post in what should have been the opening goal. 2 minutes later, Manuela Guliano sends the ball into the box. Pamela Lazaro got her head on the end of it again, but the goalkeeper collected it. Roma was playing flawlessly; they were dominating, for the most part, they were looking really good in all aspects of the game. Unfortunately, sometimes it can bounce the opponent’s way in a game like this. In the 31st minute coming off a corner, lucky Milan fortunate Milan was able to get on the end of it as Lindsey Thomas puts in her opener with a header beating Camellia Caesar to give AC Milan a 1–0 lead. AC Milan’s first half was Dreadful, unfortunate so many mistakes; their passing was so erratic they were incredibly lucky to be in front as they were playing so poorly. Romo got on the break not long after; as Glionna threads the ball to Anna on the break, she would have an open look the Italian International follow through as the ball was heading for the back of the net until the AC Milan defense stuck a foot out and got a deflection. Talk about misfortunate but incredible defense at the same time. Glionna on a free kick near the scores in stoppage-time, hitting the post for the second time in the first half. As AC Milan held a 1–0 lead going into the second half. Roma dominated them in total control and was the better team in the game by far, but a little luck went the way of AC Milan. It was more of the same going into the second half. Roma was in total control and was dominating AC Milan, but it took a while for them to draw level.

AC Milan got on the break at the end of the game; a cross came from inside the box, meeting Lindsay Thomas, but Camellia Caesar saves to end the action. Roma AC Milan split the points while the title Ambitions may have been dented. Roma keeps themselves in second place; unfortunately, luck was not on their side; despite manhandling AC Milan, they only get a point out of it.

Roma had an extensive and lengthy 10-game winning streak prior to the last two weeks. Just possible that Roma’s league title Ambitions might be a year away. However, this team will be ready to take the crown from Juventus next season. There’s still a slight possibility that they can do it this season, but after the last two results, that made it difficult. They have drawn with Juventus and AC Milan. Roma was significantly the better team in both of those games and had to deal with some unfortunate luck. The own goal against Juventus is the one that sticks out, and then this last weekend against AC Milan hitting the crossbar three times and AC Milan scoring off a set piece that was quite fortunate to begin with. The performance of the two goalkeepers with absolutely astounding AC Milan did not create a ton of chances, but when they did most of the time, it ended Camellia Caesar making a tremendous save. Roma outclassed them from start to finish, but the goals just weren’t there for them in the way that had been in past weeks. The performances haven’t been different; they’ve been consistent for the last 12 to 13 games; the difference is luck hasn’t been on their side in their last two games their performances have been excellent but finishing in front of goal against AC Milan You could argue was slightly an issue. Still, they hit the crossbar on three different occasions and AC Milan’s how-to-go line clearance. Collectively AC Milan’s performance was dreadful and lethargic. Less than 30% possession and their passing accuracy were at 54%. Roma absolutely was great, but unfortunately, due to excellent goalkeeping and dumb luck, the Roma women cannot collect maximum points. Next week they will take on 3rd place with a victory they can create separation and mutually confirm Champions League football next season it is a big match that they should have no problem getting to in the end. Roma has to be disappointed not to achieve maximum points. Still, their performances have not worsened, so they’ll be ready and out for any challenge that you put in front of them the rest of the season mind you, the Coppa Italia is something they very well could retain they got one foot in the door where they will meet one of the two teams that they have just played. Roma will be disappointed, but they will make the proper adjustments to finish the season strong.
