The gap between Roma and the top four has closed after they defeated Udinese 3-1 in Serie A on Sunday. Udinese’s first defeat in nearly two months leaves them just a point above the relegation zone, while Roma has won four of their last six matches. Florian Thauvin had leveled for Udinese, canceling out Gianluca Mancini’s first-half opener. Roma took the lead when Dybala floated in a free kick and Mancini scored with a header. They restored their advantage nine minutes from time with a great team move. Lukaku also had a hand in Roma’s third goal, assisting Edoardo Bove, who then passed to El Shaarawy to score. Domenico Berardi scored twice to help Sassuolo to a 4-3 victory at Empoli, ending a six-match winless run for his team. Sub Ilario Monterisi also scored in stoppage time to send Frosinone to a 2-1 win over Genoa.
