Roma and Milan draw 1-1 and remain level in the league

MILAN ( Associated Press) — Roma and Milan scored in injury time to draw 1-1 in Serie A on Saturday, a result that went neither side’s favor in their close fight for a Champions League spot. .

Tammy Abraham thought she had scored Roma’s winning goal by scoring in the fourth minute of stoppage time, the first shot on target of the game.

But Alexis Saelemaekers equalized three minutes later and left Abraham shaking his head in puzzlement.

Milan, who are fourth, preceded Roma on goal difference. The head-to-head is the first play-off, but the sides are level after two late Roma goals to draw Milan 2-2 in January. They are also level on goal difference.

But Roma are eight goals down in total.

Inter can equalize on points by winning against second-placed Lazio on Sunday. But Lazio need victory to prevent Napoli from becoming champions with a victory against Salernitana. This duel has been postponed since Saturday for security reasons.

Atalanta closed the gap with the top four to two points to secure a 2–1 win against Torino.

Roma striker Paulo Dybala was only set to take the bench at the Stadio Olimpico after injuring his ankle in a defeat to Atlanta last week. Roma are missing because the team failed to create chances.


In great style Colombian Duván Zapata ended his long goalless drought to help Atalanta to a decisive victory.

With two minutes to go, Zapata advanced into the box past two players and slipped Torino defender Perr Schuurs onto his back with a change of direction before shooting towards goal.

It was Zapata’s first goal since November and only his second this season. The previous campaign had 10.

Former Torino defender Davide Zappacosta opened the scoring after 34 minutes and didn’t celebrate.

Torino equalized in the 75th minute after Paraguayan Antonio Sanabria scored from a clearance after Atalanta goalkeeper Marco Sportiello could only save Aleksej Miranchuk’s shot.
