Roma beats AC Milan 2-0 to keep title race open

ROME (AP) — Refusing to concede the Serie A title, Roma produced a convincing 2-0 win over AC Milan on Friday that will keep Juventus from celebrating for at least another week.

Miralem Pjanic dribbled through the defense to score an extraordinary goal in the 43rd minute at the Stadio Olimpico and Gervinho added another from a rebound in the 65th for Roma's ninth straight victory — ending Milan's five-match winning streak.

With only three matches to play, Roma moved within five points of Juventus, which visits relegation-threatened Sassuolo on Monday.

While Juventus can clinch the title if it beats Sassuolo and Atalanta a week later no matter what Roma does, the Giallorossi are hoping the title race stays open until they host the leader in the penultimate round.
