AS Roma took a while to find the breakthrough on Matchday 17 of the 2023/24 Serie A season, but eventually found a way to beat Alex Meret in the Napoli goal and claim a 2-0 win over the outgoing champions in a game that was filled with cards, and saw the Partenopei go down to nine players.

Despite the action, it wasn’t a chance-filled game at the Stadio Olimpico, and clear-cut opportunities were few and far between. Lorenzo Pellegrini fired in a fine opener on the turn in the second half, and Romelu Lukaku was afforded the freedom of Rome on the counterattack to kill things off in stoppage time.

The result leaves Roma sixth in the Serie A table on 28 points, with Napoli a point and a place behind.
