Milan: AS Roma kept in touch with the leading pack in Serie A with a 4-1 victory at Fiorentina whose winless run was extended to seven league games on Friday.

Early goals from Edin Dzeko and Aleksandar Kolarov plus late strikes by Lorenzo Pellegrini and Nicolo Zaniolo secured the points for the visitors.

Roma, fourth with 35 points, moved within a point of third-placed Lazio, who do not play in Serie A this weekend because of their Supercup match against Juventus in Saudi Arabia on Sunday.

Fiorentina, taken over by American billionaire Rocco Commisso during the close season, are 14th with 17 points, only four clear of the relegation zone.

Roma, beaten 7-1 on their previous visit to the Artemio Franchi stadium in a cup match in January, went ahead with a well-worked goal after 19 minutes.

Lorenzo Pellegrini set Nicolo Zaniolo away on the right and he crossed into the area for Dzeko to net from close range.

Two minutes later, Kolarov extended Roma's lead by scoring from his third free kick of the season, curling a left-foot shot over the well.

Milan Badelj pulled one back in the 34th but Roma's Pellegrini restored a two-goal lead by turning in Dzeko's pass from the edge of the area in the 73rd. Zaniolo finished off a counter-attack for the fourth with two minutes left.
