Roma held by Livorno

Roma were held at home by Livorno last night and hence dropped two vital points in the chase to beat Inter to another Scudetto. They’ll rue a lot of wasted chances as really they should’ve been a few in front by half-time. No goals in the first half but ten minutes after the restart, Vucinic scored a lovely looping header over Livorno keeper, Amelia. They took the foot off the gas and in the 83rd minute were punished by a well taken Diamanti free-kick, finding the top right corner. Amelia then kept Livorno in the game with a couple of nice saves and they can take home a share of the spoils.

Inter have a good chance to put 6 points between them and Roma tonight. Video highlights below.

Inter vs Livorno (2-0)

Posted on February 17, 2008. Filed under: Inter, serie a, Video | Tags: , , |

Inter took full advantage of the second place battle between Juventus and Roma which caused the latter to miss out on points and almost second place. Inter opened up their lead on the league to 11 points and can probably already taste that third consecutive scudetto.

Suazo was given a start as Ibrahimovic and Cruz were rested for the important champions league match with Liverpool in several days. He did not waste the opportunity and sealed the win with an early brace. The first goal was a header through Amelia’s legs off a Chivu free kick and the second goal made use of a defensive blunder on Livorno’s part, a simple tap in.

Check the highlights below.
