Totti shines as Roma continue run at Inter

A first-half double from evergreen captain Francesco Totti helped AS Roma engineer a 3-0 win at FC Internazionale Milano and extend their perfect start to the Serie A season.

A first-half double from evergreen captain Francesco Totti helped AS Roma record a superb 3-0 win at FC Internazionale Milano, as the Giallorossi maintained their 100% record to stretch their early lead atop Serie A to five points.

Totti has been in scintillating form so far this term, notching a goal and six assists before this contest, and he steered his Roma team to a seventh straight victory. The 37-year-old broke the deadlock at San Siro with a low drive from the edge of the area on 18 minutes and thumped in a second from the penalty spot as half-time approached. It was Totti's 230th Serie A strike, leaving him 44 behind Silvio Piola in the all-time rankings.

Alessandro Florenzi's angled drive from a beautifully weighted Kevin Strootman pass put Roma out of sight before the break, though it was not all good news for the Giallorossi, who had full-back Federico Balzaretti sent off in the second half.

Earlier, Maximiliano Moralez's first goal since September 2012 and an excellent showing from goalkeeper Andrea Consigli helped Atalanta BC beat AC Chievo Verona 1-0 and consign their opponents to a third consecutive defeat. It was the first time Atalanta had won away against the Flying Donkeys in Serie A.
