Roma secure late win as Juventus break with 116-year tradition

Roma secure late win as Juventus break with 116-year tradition

Roma kept their Champions League hopes alive when late goals from Alessandro Florenzi and Edin Dzeko gave them a 2-0 home win over Serie A champions Juventus on Sunday.

Claudio Ranieri's Roma move to within a point of fourth-placed Inter Milan, who host Chievo on Monday.

The defeat for Juventus was also marked by the unveiling of their controversial new home strip, which sees the club abandon the traditional black and white strikes in favor of a half white, half black two-tone approach.

Alessandro Florenzi, the Roma skipper, will have another reason to be satisfied with the result given a testy exchange with Ronaldo while the scores were still level at 0-0.

When she tweeted about the boy on Saturday, May 11th, fans thought that perhaps Kim was hinting at its name. Kim and Kanye are already parents to three lovely children named North West , Saint West and Chicago West.

The Italian giants have been looking to add another UEFA Champions League trophy to their name and the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo last summer suggested the same. "Even if not everything depends on us, we must reach the end with a clear conscience". Cristiano Ronaldo thought he had put Juventus ahead when he collected Dybala's pass before running on to slot the ball past Mirante but he was fractionally offside. Dzeko then finished off a counter-attack in stoppage time.

Torino, seventh, came from behind to beat Sassuolo 3-2.

Fabio Quagliarella pulled a goal back for Sampdoria converting a penalty in injury time to take his Serie A leading tally to 26 goals - five more than Juventus star Ronaldo.

Napoli won 2-1 at Spal.
