Serie A By: Linus Onyeze | 10/04/2017

Edin Dzeko scored again for Roma as  they recorded an emphatic win to keep the chase on Juventus over the weekend.

Juventus edged ever closer to another Serie A title with another victory over the weekend, but it is not yet a done deal for them, as Roma kept up the chase, while Napoli also continued their impressive run with a win.

With matchday 31 decided, we take you through how it all went down in one of the best leagues in the world.

Bologna 0-3 Roma

The capital club kept up their slim hopes of catching Juventus at the summit of the Serie A table with this emphatic win over Bologna at the weekend. Edin Dzeko continued his impressive form with a goal, while Mohamed Salah and Federico Fazio got the other goals.

Lazio 0-3 Napoli

The title may be beyond them now, with 10 points off leaders Juventus, but they are only four points adrift of Roma in second, and must be motivated by the prospect of finishing behind Juve on the log.

Juventus 2-0 Chievo

Gonzalo Higuain’s double were enough to seal this win for the Old Lady, maintaining their seven points lead at the top, as they inch closer to another Serie A title.
