In the 34th round, the players of the second-placed team of the Italian championship played 2-2 (1-1) away to Roma. Inter, lost to the leading Juventus by three points.

Roma equalized in the very end of the first half through Spinazzola (45 + 1), after Inter took the lead with a goal by De Vrio (15) who was the highest in the jump after a corner kick, and the impression is that Di Bello made a mistake because at the beginning of the action Roma did not award a foul on Lautar Martinez.

Roma then took the lead with a goal by Mhitarjan (57), and Inter was damaged once again in the 70th minute when they did not receive a penalty kick, although Eriksen’s attempt from a free-kick was obviously stopped by a Roma player in the living wall. 

As Spinazzola missed the ball in the 87th minute and hit Moses in the leg, and the sure performer of the most severe penalty for the final 2-2 was Lukaku (88-11m), Inter received a penalty kick just before the end of the game.

Juventus who will play against Lazio on Monday is leading the table with five points more than Inter which is ranked second with 72 points, one more than the third Atalanta, and with 58 points Roma is placed fifth, two more than the sixth Milan and the seventh Napoli.
