Roma Continues to Climb Up the Table

Roma launched 22 shots today, six on goal at the Stadio Olimpico as the outfit continues to climb back into next season’s European discussion.  Francesco Totti’s second-half goal ensured a 1-0 victory; it was the club’s third straight win over Fiorentina in Rome.

The Giallorossi now sit 14th in the Serie A table, but only six points out of a UEFA Cup bid.  Roma has won three straight — a 1-0 win versus Lazio in the Rome derby and then last weekend’s 3-0 away win at Lecce. 

Fiorentina now have five away defeats on the year.

Atalanta 2-0 Lazio

Goals from Valdes in the 54th and Sergio Floccari in the 68th minute proved too much for the Roman side.
