Empoli 0-0 Roma

Roma
Roma are now one point above AC Milan and two clear of city rivals Lazio

Roma are now four points behind Serie A leaders Juventus after a goalless draw at lowly Empoli.

Empoli, who have scored two goals in 11 league games this season, frustrated the visitors, who had Mohamed Salah booked for diving in injury time when his shirt had been pulled.

AC Milan moved up to third behind Roma with a 1-0 win over Pescara, Giacomo Bonaventura scoring the only goal.

Crotone picked up their first ever Serie A win as they beat Chievo 2-0.

Lazio beat Sassuolo 2-1, and Atalanta earned a 3-0 win over Genoa in Sunday afternoon's other Italian top-flight games.

In the evening match, Inter Milan suffered a fourth defeat in five Serie A games as they were beaten 1-0 at Sampdoria.
