Roma moved up to second in Group E of the Champions League with a hard-fought victory over Basle.
Roma moved into a 2-0 lead through Jeremy Menez (16) and Francesco Totti’s 26th-minute penalty.
The home side deservedly hit back in an entertaining clash through Alexander Frei’s close-range header after 69 minutes, but Roma restored their two-goal cushion seven minutes later through substitute Leandro Greco.
Basle refused to throw in the towel and Xherdan Shaqiri made it 3-2 on 82 minutes with a smart finish, but Roma held on for the win.
