Eusebio Di Francesco lives to fight another day as Roma coach after his side emerged 3-2 victors from their must-win Serie A clash with Genoa in Rome.

Widespread reports in the build-up to the game suggested that anything other than a win would see the former Sassuolo boss shown the door, but his side fought back from behind twice to earn three points and move them into sixth place.

Federico Fazio and Justin Kluivert responded to strikes from Serie A top scorer Krzysztof Piatek and Oscar Hiljemark in the first half, before Bryan Cristante netted the winner after the break.
