Cristiano Ronaldo: Florenzi gets last laugh after height taunts

Cristiano Ronaldo: Florenzi gets last laugh after height taunts”

Roma wing-back Alessandro Florenzi has dismissed his clash with Cristiano Ronaldo after victory over Juventus. We could've gone on the counter with Kolarov in the first half, but we put it out of play, because that's the kind of people we are.

"We must continue to believe in it. Even if not everything depends on us, we have to get to the end with a clear conscience".

They now sit sixth, one point behind fourth with two games to go.

The win sees Roma move level with fifth-placed AC Milan with 62 points, one behind fourth-placed Inter and three behind third-placed Atalanta.

The defeat came on the day that Juventus displayed their new strip which no longer features the club's iconic black and white stripes in a breakaway from over a century of tradition.

Udinese and Empoli both got what could prove to be crucial wins in their fight to avoid relegation.

Ronaldo's hopes of finishing the season as the Serie A top scorer are slim as his 21 goals are five behind Sampdoria's Fabio Quagliarella's 26 with two games left.

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. Sassuolo played more than an hour of the match with 10 men after Mehdi Bourabia was shown a second yellow card for celebrating his goal by half removing his shirt and was sent off.

Napoli won 2-1 at Spal.
