In the last football match of the 5th round of the Italian football championship, Roma and Napoli won while Torino and Lazio played a draw, here is Serie A recap. Roma defeated Udinese with a 1-0 match score and the only goal of the match was scored by Tammy Abraham. Adding three new points making it a total of 12 Roma came in fourth place, one less than Inter and Milan, and three less than the leading Napoli.
Earlier on Thursday for Torino, Croatian striker Marko Pjaca was the scorer for the second game in a row, scoring his team’s only goal in a 1-1 (0-0) home draw against Lazio. As six days ago in the match of the 4th round against Sassuolo, Pjaca scored the first goal of the match after the Croatian expert Ivan Jurić introduced him to the game instead of the second Croatian player Josip Brekalo.
In the 74th minute, Jurić sent Pjaca to the pitch and only two minutes later, the 26-year-old striker scored with his head at the net of the guests from Rome after Sing’s cross. Pjaca found himself in another great situation just after five minutes, but then his kick from 12 meters saved Reina.
Immobile’s penalty kick in the first minute of the added time saved Lazio from a defeat. Earlier, Djidji knocked down Muriqi in his penalty area without hesitation. Lazio is now placed seventh with eight points, one more than the ninth Torino.
