Roma 3-2 Fiorentina: Lupi Edge Past Resilient Viola As Revival Continues

Claudio Ranieri's men picked up their second win in only three days tonight as they overcame a stubborn Viola side at the Stadio Olimpico to climb to sixth in the standings. Fabio Simplico broke the deadlock just before half-time and Marco Borriello added a second shortly after the break.

Alberto Gilardino and Simone Perrotta traded goals in the following minutes, before Gaetano D'Agostino scored a wonderful free-kick in the waning moments of the game.

Roma showed they meant business right from the start as Marco Borriello was very active upfront and had a chance to open the scoring in the 21st minute, but saw his header from the box saved by Artur Boruc.

Minutes later the ex-Milan striker had another opportunity to break the deadlock, but put his finish wide of the right post. Jeremy Menez was also denied by the Polish goalkeeper shortly after, following a blistering run on the right wing.

The story is too old to be commented.

Roma impressed me yesterday. If they keep on that track, they should have good chances to fight for the title. I hope they win. I really dont want non of the teams from Milan to win.

Roma are a good team. Awful start of the season, but I think they end up high. Top 3 after Inter and Milan
