A late own goal by Maximiliano Pellegrino handed Roma a narrow victory at Cesena this afternoon.
The luckless defender stuck out a foot in the hope of clearing Fabio Simplicio’s close-range effort but poked the ball into the back of his own net.
Seconds earlier, Roma substitute Marco Borriello had struck the crossbar.
The result lifted Roma fourth in Serie A, a point ahead of Juventus and two behind third-placed Lazio.
Cesena, meanwhile, remain one place and one point above the drop zone.
