Elsewhere in the afternoon games, Chievo came from 2-0 and 3-2 down to hold Roma 3-3, with Simone Pepe scoring a late equaliser.

AC Milan lost 1-0 to Bologna, with Emanuele Giaccherini - on loan from Sunderland - scoring the only goal.

Lazio were held 0-0 by second-from-bottom Carpi, who are now three points above winless Verona.

Sassuolo drew their game 2-2 with struggling Frosinone.
