Egypt’s Mohamed Salah assists Roma’s first goal as the Giallorossi cruise past AC Milan with ease in the 35th fixture of the Serie A.

Roma managed to trash Milan 1-4 away from home in the San Siro. Eden Dzeko opened the scoring for the away side with a perfectly curled shot in the eighth minutes following an assist from Egypt’s Mohamed Salah.

Just 20 minutes later, the Bosnian managed to complete his brace, scoring his team’s second goal.

Both teams failed to score until the referee blew the half-time whistle.

AC Milan’s Mario Pasalic managed to pull one back in the 76th minute, making it 1-2.

However, just two minutes later Stephan El Shaarawy restored Roma’s two goal lead as he placed the ball in the back of Donnarumma’s net.

Salah managed to win his side a penalty kick in the dying moments of the game, as Gabriel Paletta fouled him inside the penalty box and received a straight red card. Danielle De Rossi converted the penalty kick perfectly into the back of the net making it 1-4.

Following the win, Roma has now managed to win six straight away matches for the first time in their Serie A history.

It is also Roma’s second time in Serie A history to score four goals in AC Milan net away from home.

It is worth mentioning, that Roma currently occupies the second league spot with 78 points , seven points away from league leaders Juventus.



Mohammed Salama is a 20-year-old who fell in love with football since Egypt's AFCON final match against Ivory Coast! Strangely enough an Al Ahly and Al Masry fan locally. In addition, he's a hardcore Bayern Munich supporter.
