Egypt international Mohamed Salah scored and assisted to help AS Roma seal a 3-1 comeback victory against Sassulo at the Stadio Olympico, in the 29th round of Seria A.

Two minutes into the start of the game, Mohamed Salah missed a golden opportunity to put the hosts ahead, as his close range shot was denied by Sassulo’s goalkeeper before his follow-up found the side netting.

Luciano Spalletti’s men then found themselves behind after eight minutes; Domenico Berardi made a good run on the left side before a sending a low cross to Defrel, who gave Sassulo the lead.

Eight minutes later, Salah provided the ball to Paredes, who sent a superb strike into the far bottom corner to equalize.

In the second minute of additional time, Salah gave AS Roma a narrow advantage before they headed to the dressing rooms, scoring his tenth goal this season.

In the 68th minute, AS Roma managed to double their lead. The club’s top scorer Edin Dzeko played a one-two pass with Kevin Strootman to send him 1-on-1 with the goalkeeper before he netted Roma’s third goal.

Mohamed Salah’s night came to an early end, as he made way for Diego Perotti in the 77th minute.

The victory sends AS Roma back into second, hours after Napoli’s victory against Empoli. Roma are now on 65 points, two away from third-placed Napoli and eight points behind leaders Juventus.
