Roma slip up at Lecce

Round-up: Roma suffered a major blow in the race for third place in the Serie A table when they lost 4-2 at third-bottom Lecce.


Luis Muriel and David Di Michele scored twice to shockingly put the hosts 4-0 ahead with 55 minutes on the clock, and late goals from Bojan and Erik Lamela only softened the blow for the Rome outfit.

Udinese moved joint-third - at least until Lazio faced Napoli later on Saturday - after a 3-1 home win over Parma while Inter Milan's outside hopes of third were hit by a 2-2 draw against Cagliari in Andrea Stramaccioni's second game in charge.

Bottom side Cesena were held 0-0 by local rivals Bologna to all but ended their chances of survival while second-bottom Novara drew 1-1 with Genoa. European hopefuls Catania lost 3-2 at Chievo while Siena won 2-1 at Atalanta.
