Roma edge win, Rooney equals United record

Sunday’s trip to face Genoa was Roma‘s first game of 2017, and the Giallorossi ensured a positive start to the year by clinching a 1-0 victory courtesy of Armando Izzo’s own goal. That kept the capital side within four points of leaders Juventus, though they have played one game more.

There was a little more flair to Manchester United‘s performance against Reading as José Mourinho’s men progressed to the FA Cup fourth round via a 4-0 win. Rooney opened the scoring with his 249th goal for the club – equalling Sir Bobby Charlton’s Red Devils record.

Tottenham likewise progressed in the FA Cup after seeing off Aston Villa 2-0, while Lyon and St-Étienne both advanced to the French Cup round of 32. Elsewhere, Villarreal were denied a Liga win against Barcelona by Lionel Messi’s late free-kick equaliser and APOEL went top in Cyprus.
