Milan Women defeated in season opener against Roma – the match report

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan Women faced Roma in their season opener earlier today and despite finding the back of the net twice, they lost. Maurizio Ganz’s side will thus have to go again next week. 

Roma were the clear winners of Serie A Femminile last season and today’s clash was thus always going to be tough for the Rossonere. Unfortunately, despite equalising at 2-2, they ended up losing the game.

Our colleague Luca Maninetti was present at Vismara to watch the game and below are the key events from his live reporting. If you want the entire recap, you can read the original article here.

Key events

1′ The game is underway!

36′ – Roma goal! Linari anticipates everyone after the cross from Giugliano’s free-kick and puts it behind Giuliani. The Giallorossi defender is kept in play by Bergamaschi.

38′ – Roma goal! An error by the Rossoneri defence, Arnadottir in particular, who gives the ball to Haavi who shoots from the edge and makes it 0-2!

45′ – Half-time! An ugly Milan in this first half. Defending and counter-attacking are not enough against this Roma team who, as soon as they revved up their engine, troubled the Rossoneri defence with Linari and Haavi.

50′ – MILAN GOAL GOAL! Dompig shoots from the edge of the box in a tight angle and the ball goes past Ceasar into the corner! 1-2! Game back on!

61′ – GOAL GOAL GOAL FOR MILAN! Marinelli makes it 2-2 after a scrappy situation, having just come off the bench!

79′ – Roma goal: Greggi sends a great right-footed strike and beats the keeper.

90′ – Six minutes of added time.

90+3′ – Roma goal! Serturini puts it in the middle for Glionna who anticipates Arnadottir and ends the match.

Full-time whistle!
