Beerensteyn leads the way for Juventus in Serie A Femminile but AS Roma aren’t slowing down

Juventus and AS Roma have shown once again just how far ahead they are of the competition in Serie A Femminile, with the Bianconere's Lineth Beerensteyn standing out on Matchday 4 and Roma impressing against Inter.

We all knew that AS Roma and Juventus would be the leading pair during the 2023/24 Serie A Femmninile season, and Matchday 4 has only further cemented that, with both teams winning yet again.

They are the only two teams to boast a 100% record after four matches and we’re into a situation where one of them has to blink first. Interestingly, though, they can’t both have a 100% record beyond Matchday 6 as Juventus host Roma on November 5 at 12:30 CET. Pop that in the diary.

For now, though, various players in both teams are staking their claim to become undroppable, with Alessandro Spugna at Roma and Joe Montemurro at Juventus happy to rotate regularly.

Beerensteyn on form against Sassuolo

There are a number of players in the Juventus side that can hurt a team like Sassuolo, but it was Lineth Beerensteyn who really took on the job on Matchday 4.

The Dutch winger found herself somewhat in the eye of a storm during the summer. She spoke to reporters during the 2023 Women’s World Cup and was informed that the USA had been knocked out by Sweden.

“From the first moment I heard they were out, I was just like, ‘Yes! Bye!” she began. “From the start of the tournament, they had really big mouths and were already talking about the final.

“I was thinking you first have to show it on the pitch before you talk [big]. I’m not being rude in that way, I still have a lot of respect for them, but now they’re out of the tournament, and for me, it’s a relief, and for them, it’s something they will have to take with them in the future. Don’t start to talk about something that is far away. I hope they will learn from that.”

Naturally, she came in for a lot of stick from USWNT fans and that only intensified when the Netherlands were knocked out, with Beerensteyn missing a host of chances.

She seems to have put that quickly behind her, starting the new season with four goals in her first four games. She looked electric against Sassuolo, the first goal being a very neat finish and the second a devastating run inside and a finish that made it look like she was playing against a younger age category.

Considering she joined from Bayern Munich before the 2022/23 season and has shown her quality consistently at Juventus, it would not be a shock to see her linked with perhaps a Women’s Super League or Liga F move. Juventus‘s failure to reach the Women’s Champions League group stage was a major blow and it is players like Beerensteyn that will expect to be playing at that level.

AS Roma continue to cruise

The match between Juventus and AS Roma in November promises to be fascinating, as it is really hard to envisage either losing a Serie A Femminile game right now.

Roma faced their toughest test of the season so far as Inter arrived at the Stadio Tre Fontane, but despite the scoreline only being 2-0 by the full-time whistle, Roma never looked like ceding control of the game.

The opening goal from Giada Greggi featured superb play from Emilie Haavi and Valentina Giacinti before Greggi‘s excellent cushioned volley. She has two goals in the first four games which suggests a conscious effort has been made to add more goals to her already extensive skillset.

Roma could have scored more than two, never looked like losing, and Inter are left feeling like the gap to the Giallorosse and Juventus is too big to breach for another season.

Elsewhere, Sampdoria secured a huge win at the bottom of the table as they beat Napoli 2-0 away from home. Both teams had no points coming into that game so despite it being so early in the campaign, it was vital to get those three points and lose the psychological issue of having no points.
