Roma lost ground in the Serie A title race after they played out a 3-3 draw away at Chievo this afternoon.
It seemed that the visiting Romans were going to cruise to the three points when they opened up a two-goal first-half advantage, only for the hosts to peg them back.
However, a strike from Roma midfielder Iago Falque 19 minutes from time put his side back in command, but ex-Giallorossi midfielder Simone Pepe then found the net in the dying embers to ensure that the spoils would be shared.
Roma dominated large parts of the first half, which meant that it came as little surprise when the deadlock was broken in just the seventh minute.
The lead was then doubled eight minutes before the break by Alessandro Florenzi, who pounced on a defensive error to fire in his sixth goal of the campaign for club and country.
Just when attention turned to the strugglers scoring what had earlier seemed to be an unlikely third goal, it was Roma that regained the lead.
Former Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Falque was afforded too much space on the edge of the box and he duly punished Rolando Maran's side with a low shot that nestled in the bottom corner.
Yet, fifth-placed Roma were denied the victory when Pepe, who left the club in 2003 without having played for the senior side, curled in from 20 yards out.
