Roma thrashed bottom side Pescara 4-1 to move back to within eight points Serie A leaders Juventus.
Three goals in five minutes either side of half-time ensured the points went back to Rome.
The win keeps Roma’s slim hopes of denying Juve a sixth straight Serie A title alive.
There are five games left in the Italian league season, with Roma – who still have to play Lazio and AC Milan – hosting their Turin rivals on May 14.
The result means Pescara are relegated to Serie B.
