Abraham opened the scoring from the penalty spot for Roma, but the hosts took the lead thanks to an own goal by Chris Smalling and a goal by Hamed Traore.

Tammy Abraham (11) has now scored more goals than any other English player in Europe’s top five leagues this season.

In Serie A on Sunday, struggling Roma side required a goal from Bryan Cristante late in second-half stoppage time to earn a 2-2 draw away at Sassuolo, with the Neroverdi having earlier managed to turn the game around despite falling behind before the interval.

After Chris Smalling put the ball past his own goalie immediately after the break, Sassuolo completed their comeback in the 73rd minute when Domenico Berardi teed up Hamed Junior Traore, who put his club ahead.

Roma have now gone three games without a win, having drawn 0-0 with Genoa on Sunday and losing 2-0 to Inter in the Coppa Italia last week.

Jose Mourinho’s side is now in seventh place in Serie A, 15 points behind leaders AC Milan, with Sassuolo in 12th place with 30 points.

“It isn’t the outcome we expected, but at the very least we haven’t lost in the past four in Serie A,” Mourinho remarked. We’ve earned a total of eight points.

“I would not have wanted a draw if you had asked me at the start, but in the 90th minute, absolutely.”

Danilo scored an added-time equalizer for Juventus in a 1-1 draw with Atalanta in Serie A, earning a point that might be essential to their top-four chances.

In the 92nd minute, the Brazil right-back headed in from a corner to cancel off Ruslan Malinovskyi’s long-range strike, which had put Atalanta on the verge of reclaiming fourth place.

Juventus are still in fourth place with 46 points, two more than Atalanta, although Gian Piero Gasperini’s team has a game in hand.
