Highlights: Roma 2-0 Juventus

By on 12th May 2019

AS Roma boosted their chances of qualifying for next season’s Champions League with a 2-0 victory over 2018-19 Italian Serie A champions Juventus on Sunday evening.

In a tight game with few clear-cut opportunities, Alessandro Florenzi gave the hosts the lead with 11 minutes remaining before Edin Dzeko sealed the three points late on.

Cristiano Ronaldo had earlier seen a goal disallowed for offside for Juventus.

This important win for Claudio Ranieri’s Roma move them to within a point of fourth-placed Internazionale, who host Chievo Verona on Monday night.

Juventus and Napoli have already wrapped up Champions League football for next season, but the battle for the two remaining places in Italy is set to go down to the wire with just three points separating Atalanta in third from Roma down in sixth. AC Milan and Torino are the other two sides in contention.
