In the standings Roma fifth on 26 points, -12 from Napoli in the lead, Sassuolo 12th.

In the other match Atalanta was defeated in Lecce 2-1, running into its third defeat in the last four games. All the goals in the first half: the Salentini took a double lead thanks to Baschirotto and Di Francesco, in the 28th and 30th minutes, Zapata halved the distance in the 39th minute but in the second half the hosts resisted the comeback of La Dea, which is stuck in third place in the standings with 27 points.
