    Monza win marks 1300th Serie A victory: Milestones in our history!

    Roma’s latest win over Monza has entered the history books as the 1300th win by the club since Serie A has been played as a unified championship.

    Here are the other milestone wins!

    Roma’s first win is also their biggest ever Serie A victory (tied with the 10-1 win over Altay Izmir in the second leg of the 1962/63 Inter-City Fairs Cup). Rodolfo Volk was one of the high-scorers, bagging three goals. Volk secured his hat-trick and played up front with Luigi Ossoinach. The two forwards had another thing in common: they were both from Fiume (Rijeka). The other Roma goals were scored by Arturo Chini, Fulvio Bernardini and Oreste Benatti.

    Exactly six years later, but this time against Lazio, Roma secured their 100th win. Renato Cattaneo was the match winner. He wore the Giallorossi shirt for three seasons, tallying up seven goals in 43 appearances.

    Here’s another funny coincidence: Roma’s 200th win was also the first match played by the newly formed Sampdoria. Amedeo Amadei scored every Roma goal of the game. The Frascati-born player racked up 111 goals in 235 Roma matches.

    N° 300: Roma 3-2 Atalanta, 31 December 1955

    In trying to anticipate “Golden Head” Carletto Galli, Atalanta’s Giulio Corsini (who would go on to play for Roma for seven seasons, 1957-1964) scored a decisive own goal that gave Roma their 300th win in Serie A.

    Angelo Orazi was the scorer that brought Roma their 500th victory, beating Napoli’s keeper, Giuseppe Porrino, in the 76th minute. Roma made it through at the Bentegodi despite playing over half the match with ten men as a result of Giorgio Morini’s red card. Roma’s goalkeeper, Paolo Conti, can also take some of the credit for the win. Having only just replaced Alberto Ginulfi, he saved a penalty by Verona’s Sergio Madde in the final four minutes of the game.

    The Giallorossi’s 600th win was also the biggest of the 1982/83 season. On the day that second-place Verona lost to Avellino and third-place Inter lost at home against Torino, Roma thrashed Napoli with goals from Sebastiano Nela, Carlo Ancelotti, Roberto Pruzzo and Agostino Di Bartolomei, who scored a brace. This win took them five points clear of Hellas Verona and six points clear of Inter and Juventus with 10 matches left of the season at a time when two points were awarded for a win. Under Nils Liedholm’s stewardship, the Giallorossi won the title to give them their second Scudetto.

    A sparkling performance by Roma ended in a 4-1 win over Inter. Antonio Cassano, Amatino Mancini, and our captain Francesco Totti all got themselves on the scoreboard.

    After an extraordinary start with ten successive wins, Rudi Garcia’s Roma started to slow down and Juventus took the top spot in the table. The Giallorossi were still in second place and achieved a prestigious win over Milan at the Olimpico, marking their 1100th victory. Miralem Pjanic was a key player in this achievement, shaking off the Rossaneri defence to find the back of the net. Gervinho scored the second goal.
