Highlights: Roma 5-2 Benevento

There was no shortage of entertainment or goals at the Olimpico, including an Edin Dzeko brace, Pedro Rodriguez strike and stunning Carles Perez run from his own half.

Benevento had gone in front through a deflected Gianluca Caprari effort, Pedro and Dzeko turned it around with two goals in four minutes.

Gianluca Lapadula saw his penalty saved by Antonio Mirante, but still scored with the rebound for 2-2.

There was another spot-kick from Jordan Veretout before Roma turned on the style with Dzeko meeting the Henrikh Mkhitaryan assist and Carles Perez riding three tackles to score a sensational solo goal.
