Last Updated: 17/02/18 10:35pm
Roma gave themselves a boost in the battle for Serie A's European places by winning 2-0 at Udinese on Saturday.
The game was goalless for 70 minutes before rising Turkish star Cengiz Under scored his fourth goal in three games with a ferocious left-footed drive from outside the box.
Diego Perotti made the game safe in the last minute, tucking away from Radja Nainggolan's through-ball to extend Roma's winning run to three.
Inter Milan missed the chance to climb above Roma and into third after they were beaten 2-0 by Genoa.
Andrea Ranocchia's 45th-minute own goal and a strike from Goran Pandev saw Genoa record their third league win in five games and climb to 12th place.
Chievo pulled themselves away from the relegation zone with a 2-1 win over Cagliari.
Emanuele Giaccherini's unstoppable free-kick and Roberto Inglese's excellent solo strike put the hosts two goals to the good and though Leonardo Pavoletti pulled one back, Cagliari came up short.
