De Sanctis eyes clean sheet record

Roma may have won nine games from nine, but goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis is eyeing a record of his own.

The Giallorossi have conceded just one goal in Serie A this term and that came in Week 3 during the 3-1 win at Parma.

Since that Jonathan Biabiany header, goalkeeper De Sanctis has gone 591 minutes without picking the ball out of his net.

The Roma club record for most minutes in Serie A without conceding belongs to Ivan Pelizzoli and dates back to the 2003-04 season. He went 774 minutes unbeaten.

De Sanctis is thus just over two games away from putting his name in the record books. Roma will face Chievo and Torino in their next two matches.
