Roma 4-0 Genoa

Roma beat Genoa

Roma remained eight points behind leaders Juventus in second place in Serie A after beating 10-man Genoa.

Alessandro Florenzi's sublime overhead kick started the rout as Roma bounced back from their first defeat of the season against Juventus.

Francesco Totti scored his first goal of the season from Gervinho's cutback before Maicon bundled home the third.

Mehdi Benatia headed in after the break as Genoa's Francesco Matuzalem saw red for a second bookable offence.
