Roma go clear as Napoli held at home

AS Roma moved two points clear at the top of Serie A with a 2-0 victory at UC Sampdoria on a night when SSC Napoli and AC Milan were held and Juventus came from behind to win.

AS Roma are two points clear at the top of Serie A after they won 2-0 at UC Sampdoria and SSC Napoli were held at home by bottom club US Sassuolo Calcio.

Buoyed by their derby victory over SS Lazio at the weekend, Roma forged ahead through Mehdi Benatia midway through the second half. Gervinho, a summer signing from Arsenal FC, scored his first goal for the club late on to ensure a Roma win, although there was still time for Sampdoria's Antonino Barillà to see red before the end.

Napoli failed to keep pace with the capital club as they could only manage a 1-1 draw at home to Sassuolo, who picked up their first point of the season but remain bottom. Juventus came from behind to beat AC Chievo Verona and join second-placed Napoli on 13 points.

There was late drama as Bologna and Milan shared the spoils in a thrilling six-goal encounter. Bologna led 3-1 going into the dying minutes only for Robinho to give the visitors hope and then Ignazio Abate to equalise. Elsewhere, ten-man Parma FC edged out Atalanta BC, Lazio got the better of Calcio Catania and the day's other games ended all square, while Udinese Calcio defeated Genoa CFC 1-0 in Tuesday's only game.
