Roma maintain pursuit, Rooney makes history

Roma kept pace with Juventus in the Serie A title hunt and Wayne Rooney became Manchester United’s all-time record scorer on a weekend of domestic tests for the UEFA Europa League sides.

Responding to a 27th consecutive home win for Juventus in the Italian top flight on Sunday afternoon, Roma recorded a narrow 1-0 success against Cagliari in the late kick-off. Edin Džeko made the difference with his 14th league effort this term to keep the Giallorossi within a point of Juve, though they have played one game more.

Eighth-placed Fiorentina had a more comfortable run-out in their 3-0 success at Chievo, while Rooney grabbed headlines in the Premier League with his 250th goal for Manchester United – a superb late free-kick equaliser against Stoke taking him past Sir Bobby Charlton in the history books. United’s fellow English hopefuls Tottenham drew 2-2 away with Manchester City.

Elsewhere, Lyon clinched an impressive 3-1 triumph at home to Marseille courtesy of an Alexandre Lacazette double, and Spain’s trio of UEFA Europa League teams managed just a point between them – Athletic holding Atlético 2-2. Schalke won for the first time in six outings and APOEL slotted seven goals past AEZ Zakakiou in Cyprus.

On Monday, Ryan Babel opened his Beşiktaş account as the Black Eagles beat Alanyaspor 4-1 to go top of the Turkish Super League.
