Nicolo Zaniolo's rapid rise making Roma look brilliant as Inter, Fiorentina rue letting him slip

AS Roma rebounded after last weekend's defeat to Juventus with a convincing 3-1 win over in-form Sassuolo.

Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco likes to remind journalists of the times they looked up from their notepads and laptops in unison and said to one another: "This guy is crazy."

Roma and Fiorentina will go all out for victory as Gabriel Batistuta watches on

Gabriel Batistuta was back in Florence this week. An Argentine film producer, Pablo Benedetti, has persuaded him to make a documentary about his life and no story about "Bati" would be complete without a trip to the banks of the Arno. Two years ago, Fiorentina's all-time top scorer was made an honorary citizen of the Tuscan capital, and when the mayor Dario Nardella heard he was back in town, he thought nothing of opening the doors of the Palazzo Vecchio, Florence's town hall, for him to promote...
