Roma 3-0 Torino

Roma celebrate
Roma had only won one of their previous five games

Roma returned to winning ways with a resounding victory over Torino that cut Juventus's league lead to three points.

Beaten by Napoli and Bayern Munich in their past two games, the hosts took an early lead when Vasilis Torosidis slotted in Francesco Totti's cross.

Seydou Keita drilled a low second into the corner and Adem Ljajic's powerful shot made the points safe.

Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman's first appearance since knee surgery prompted a standing ovation from the home crowd.
