hosted in a six goal thriller at the Stadio and lead an impressive comeback for the visitors who at one point were trailing by two goals.

The home side started the match in an energetic fashion and took the lead in the seventh minute after Juraj Kucka struck the ball from outside the edge of the box past Maarten Stekelenburg.

The Giallorossi pushed forward in search for an equaliser but soon found themselves two goals behind when Bosko Jankovic scored an emphatic goal in the 15th minute. Following a counter, Jankovic made his run into the box and struck an aerial volley which hit the top bar but he instinctively kicked the rebounding ball into the back of the net.

The game continued to provide action as Marco Boriello nearly beat Stekelenburg on the near post and Daniele De Rossi’s curling volley almost opened the scoring for the visitors.

However, it was Francesco Totti who brought back into the game. The veteran striker masterfully stroken the ball past after picking up Ivan Piris’ pass.

The game continued to enthrall the fans as Osvaldo’s perfectly struck volley equalised the score on the brink of half time.

The Lupi fans were on their feet at the advent of the second half as the vistors completed their comeback when Osvaldo headed in Alessandro Florenzi’s corner in the 56th minute to make the score 3-2.

Roma’s fluidity and quick passing made life difficult for the home side and they were finally undone when Erik Lamela scored in the 83rd minute. The Argentine found himself with the ball inside the box and struck a low shot to the right hand corner of the post.

Zdenek Zeman’s side have now moved on to the fifth place with 14 points.
