Roma beats Genoa 2-0 to move 2nd in Serie A as city rival Lazio draws 1-1 at Atalanta


MILAN — Roma overtook Lazio for second spot with a 2-0 win over Genoa as its city rival drew 1-1 at relegation-threatened Atalanta in Serie A on Sunday.

Seydou Doumbia and Alessandro Florenzi, who both scored in the 3-0 win at Sassuolo midweek, fired Roma to victory in the lunchtime kickoff and it remained second after Marco Parolo cancelled out former Lazio defender Giuseppe Biava's opener.

Roma moved a point above Lazio and 15 below Juventus, which clinched a fourth successive title on Saturday.

Fourth-place Napoli, which is seven points behind Lazio, hosts AC Milan later.

Fiorentina boosted its hopes of securing a European berth next season with a 3-1 win against Cesena, while Inter Milan was held to a goalless draw at home by Chievo Verona.

Udinese beat Hellas Verona 1-0.
