Florenzi, Dzeko help Roma pip Juve

Cristiano Ronaldo was embroiled in a heated argument with AS Roma star Alessandro Florenzi during their Serie A defeat and it's since been revealed what the Juventus superstar said to spark his opponents rage. The side from the capital are now unbeaten in their last seven and lift up to 6th, just one point off the top four.

But Roma captain Florenzi, perhaps annoyed by Ronaldo who had just made fun of his size, turned things around when he picked up a Dzeko cross to break the deadlock.

It proved a pivotal moment as Roma took the lead 11 minutes from time with Dzeko teeing up Florenzi to hit a low shot into the bottom corner.

Well, nearly everything. Max Allegri's side suffered just their third defeat of the season to Roma on Sunday in the Italian capital, with late goals from Florenzi and Edin Dzeko sealing an important three points for a side chasing Champions League qualification.

The removal of stripes on home kit is the first time in over a century since the club was established in 1897, although Juventus players have worn striped kits of various types in history.

His side then bagged a second goal thanks to a late strike from Edin Dzeko.

Roma boosted their hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League with victory over Serie A champions Juventus.

Diego Farias and Giovanni Di Lorenzo scored for Empoli before Fabio Quagliarella converted a stoppage-time penalty for his 26th league goal of the season.

Torino captain Andrea Belotti scored a brace, including the victor with a spectacular overhead kick in a come-from-behind 3-2 win over 10-man Sassuolo.
