AS Rome, after a half-toned start in Serie A, escaped a defeat at the end of the match (2-2) against Chievo Verona, good last, on Sunday in the 4th day.

The Roma are temporarily in 7th place (4 pts from Juve), far from their ambitions at the start of the season with a single victory in four matches. The leader, the Juventus Turin, caracole in front with a flawless before welcoming this Sunday (15h00 local, 13H00 GMT) Sassuolo, amazing 3rd.

Naples had secured the Essential Saturday in San Paolo by defeating Fiorentina (1-0) to get back to the Old Lady (9 pts).

The Roma took the lead in the 10th minute thanks to a goal scored from the flat by Stephan El Shaarawy on an ultra-precise free-kick by Alessandro Florenzi.

In the half hour of play, it was the turn of the young international (23 years old) of AS Rome, Bryan Cristante, to cheat Stefano Sorrentino on a superb service of the Bosnian Edin Dzeko.

The Romans seemed to have the match in their hands but Chievo rebounded first with a goal from Walter Birsa (52) and then his young (23) Polish forward Mariusz Stepinski signed the equaliser goal late in the game (83).

Despite the domination of the men of Eusebio Di Francesco at the end of the match, with a match ball for Dzeko (90), it was the Venetians who almost signed a huge surprise. On a coiled shot by Emanuele Giaccherini (ex-Juve), Swedish goalkeeper Robin Olsen imposed himself with his fingertips before seeing the ball caress the top of the cross.
