Hanging on the Benevento field, AS Roma missed the opportunity to press AC Milan, 2nd in Serie A.
Cries of joy accompanied the referee’s whistle. Benevento’s players are right to congratulate themselves after a heroic draw obtained Sunday night at home in front of AS Roma (0-0), in this match of the 23rd day of Serie A.
Reduced to 10 after the expulsion of Glik, the former Monegasque, for a second yellow card received in the 57th minute, Pipo Inzaghi’s players held on with great fear at the end of added time.

The Romans, third in the Italian Championship, thought they would get a penalty before the VAR reversed the game director’s decision. Foulon’s fault seemed real (90th + 6).
The performance of the footballers of Benevent, this town north of Naples, is also historic. In three official confrontations, the Giallorossi had easily won, twice 5-2 and a 4-0 between September 2017 and October 2020.
In the standings, Roma de Veretout only regained one point from AC Milan (3rd), beaten a little earlier by Inter (3-0).
