Roma almost equalized in the 74th minute, but Gianluca Mancini’s header in a corner hit the post and Bryan Cristante’s strike on the ball missed the mark.
Two more Roma chances from Eldor Shomurodov and El Shaarawy could be stopped by goalkeeper Nikita Haikin, before their efforts ultimately resulted in a Roger Ibanez header in a corner in the 84th minute to bring the score to 2-2.
