Roma falls to surprise 2-0 defeat to 10-man Spal in Serie A

MILAN (AP) Roma fell to a surprise 2-0 defeat at home Saturday to 10-man Spal, which won at the Stadio Olimpico for the first time in Serie A in 53 years.

Roma had gone into the international break with four straight wins in all competitions while Spal had lost its last four games.

However, the visitors took the lead shortly before halftime when Andrea Petagna converted a penalty after Manuel Lazzari was fouled by Luca Pellegrini.
