Highlights: Roma 4-3 Spezia

There were six goals in their Coppa Italia meeting midweek, but Roma took revenge with a 4-3 thriller in stoppages to beat Spezia.

It is never dull when these two teams cross paths and they outdid themselves at the Stadio Olimpico in their first Serie A encounter.

Borja Mayoral’s opener was cancelled out by Roberto Piccoli, but the game truly lit up in the second half.

There were three goals in a six-minute spell, the Giallorossi going 3-1 up with another from Borja Mayoral and Rick Karsdorp, before Diego Farias kept Spezia in it.

Daniele Verde again scored against his hometown club for a 90th minute equaliser, pouncing on Chris Smalling’s defensive error.

It still wasn’t over and Lorenzo Pellegrini fired in the Bruno Peres lay-off for 4-3.
