Dzeko brace as Roma bag 10

Edin Dzeko bagged a brace in the 10-1 victory over local side Trastevere, with Gianluca Mancini making his debut in a Roma jersey.

Paulo Fonseca continued to use a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Alessandro Florenzi either in a supporting trident or pulled back to midfield.

Inter transfer target Dzeko nodded in a Cengiz Under corner, followed quickly by a trademark Aleksandar Kolarov free kick.

Under was on target himself, then Mirko Antonucci scored before Dzeko added his second on a Rick Karsdorp assist.
