On the road
In a football game one side plays at home – the home team – and the other is the away side. A common term heard to describe the away team is the phrase ‘on the road‘ as the away team needs to travel to get to the game. So, for example, if a team has won on the road it means that they have won away from home. On the road.
- Example: The team failed to win on the road for the whole season – they lost all 19 games!
