The first outing for the Rossonere was a bitter defeat against Fiorentina as this sees their adventure in the Super Cup coming to an end. The ladies started with great determination and found the advantage in the sixth minute, Vero's deep throw and the usual Giacinti's wonderful lob at the far post to beat Schroffenegger. However, in the second half, goals by Fiorentina’s Kim and Quinn between 62 'and 65' sent Fiorentina to the Final of the Supercup.

The next match in the Serie A Femminile will happen on Saturday against Hellas Verona. The Rossonere need to continue their winning streak to ensure a spot in the next year’s Women Champions League. Our last encounter with Verona was a 1-0 win, scorer…our gem Giacinti.
