AS Roma's hopes of a top-four finish were dealt a major blow as they slipped to a 3-1 defeat by Serie A strugglers Torino on Sunday.
Seventh-placed Roma, who booked a Europa League semi-final date with Manchester United in midweek, took the lead after three minutes through Borja Mayoral and looked conformable as they went into the break in front.
In the second half, Roma fell apart, with goals from Antonio Sanabria and Simone Zaza turning the match on its head and setting Torino on their way to a vital victory in their quest for survival.
