    The Giallorossi have recorded five wins and three draws away from the capital so far

    18 out of 41 points earned thus far. This is Roma’s tally away from the Olimpico, thanks to their five victories and three draws, with 15 goals scored (five fewer than on home turf) and five conceded (three more than in the capital).

    The Giallorossi’s away form has been marked by its consistency: their five wins were all consecutive within the 10-game winning streak with which they began the season, before a run of three straight draws followed.

    They hit the ground running in Week 1, when second-half goals from De Rossi and Florenzi allowed Garcia’s men to overcome Livorno by a 0-2 score line.

    Their next away trip, at Parma, was more difficult. Roma went down before the break when Biabiany found the net. Then in the second half Florenzi, Totti and a penalty from Strootman turned the game around.

    A fantastic solo effort from Benatia put the Giallorossi in front at Sampdoria’s Marassi. And in the final minutes Gervinho added the icing on the cake.

    Their fourth away victory was a decisive one, when Inter were beaten 0-3 at the San Siro – although the hosts had ample opportunities to turn things around. Captain Totti provided two goals (the second from the penalty spot) and Florenzi again added to his season haul.

    The most recent away win came in Udine with a goal just eight minutes from the death. American midfielder Bradley made the most of his opportunity in a contest that saw the Zebrette waste at least five clear chances to take the lead.

    The Giallorossi's first draw came in Turin, against Ventura’s Granata. Despite a strong first half that ended with a goal from Strootman, Cerci produced a much-deserved equaliser after half-time to make it 1-1.

    In Bergamo, however, Roma risked suffering their first defeat of the season. But once again, their Dutch midfield enforcer came up trumps by responding to Brivio’s goal with an equaliser in the 90th minute.

    Most recently came their 2-2 draw with AC Milan at the San Siro. Rossoneri goals from Zapata (first half) and Muntari (second half) answered Destro’s opener and Strootman’s penalty in a very even encounter clash (12 shots per team).
