Washington, Oct 8: AS Roma has set a new Serie A record with their ninth straight win from the start of the season after they beat Udinese 1-0 on Sunday.
According to CNN, their win was secured after playing with 10 men for much of the second half after Brazilian Maicon saw red for a second bookable offense.
Juventus held the previous record of eight straight wins in 1930-31 and 1985-86, the report said.
They also won nine straight at the start of the 2005-06 season but the Bianconeri were stripped of the title and the record due to the match fixing scandal, which engulfed Italian football, the report added. (ANI)
