Soccer: Juve, Napoli close gap as Roma's perfect run ends
Leaders held 1-1 at Torino04 November, 16:40
(ANSA) - Rome, November 4 - Napoli and champions Juventus closed the gap on AS Roma at the weekend after the leaders' record-breaking 100% record was broken with a 1-1 draw at Torino.
Dutch midfielder Kevin Strootman finished off a fine move to give Roma the lead in the first half, but winger Alessio Cerci equalised for the hosts in the second.
Former Roma player Cerci's goal was only the second the pace-setters have conceded so far this season.
Roma, who won all 10 of their previous games to set a new record for the best-ever start to a Serie A campaign, have 31 points.
Juve beat Parma 1-0 away and Napoli beat Catania 2-1 enabling both sides to trim Roma's advantage from five points to three.
Inter thrashed Udinese 3-0 away.
Walter Mazzarri's side continue to share fourth-placed with promoted Hellas Verona, who beat Cagliari 2-1 at home.
AC Milan's poor start continued when they lost 2-0 at the San Siro stadium to Fiorentina.
The seven-time European champions are 19 points off the pace in 11th place and just three points above the relegation zone.
