5 teams with the best away record in Europe this season
Games away from home are never easy. A number of factors could decide the result for a team from distance travelled to the intimidating atmosphere at their opponents' home stadium.
However, some teams in Europe have looked forward to such trips this season and their form in the league proves it. Here are five teams from Europe's top five leagues who have been in stupendous from away from home.
Note: Based on results as of 24 November
#5 AS Roma (Serie A)
AS Roma, perennial underachievers in the league, are currently five points behind league leaders Napoli but they do have a game in hand after their away fixture at Sampdoria was postponed due to a severe weather alert.
In all, they have played 12 games, winning 10 times and losing twice. They are yet to play out a draw. But away from home they have won all their matches so far (5 games).
They first beat Atalanta 1-0 before thrashing Benevento 4-0. A 2-0 win at the san Siro against AC Milan followed before they then beat Torino 1-0. Their last away fixture saw the Giallorossi beat Firoentina 4-2 in spite of the Viola drawing level twice after Roma had taken the lead.
Aleksandar Kolarov has been one of their most crucial players with the full-back netting the winner in both the 1-0 wins over Atalanta and Torino.
The Serbian international had signed from Manchester City for €5m this summer and what will make Roma fans even happier is the fact that he played for arch-rivals Lazio for three seasons before his move to England.
