Roma move up to third spot after away win to Genoa (1-3)

Winning run keeps going. The Giallorossi grabbed another Serie A win away to Genoa, as Pedro Rodriguez's side won all three points with a trebble by armenian attacker Henrik Mkhitayran. But credit to Roma as it was not an easy win ton take. Pedro was on Paulo Fonseca's satarting line-upm played the full 90 minutes of the game and signed the assist of the third goal. The Giallorossi move up to third in the fledgling Serie A standings.

But in the absence of the No. 9 Edin Dzeko, it was Mkhitaryan who certainly stepped up to the plate - scoring the first Giallorossi hat-trick in just over four years to deliver the win.

His first came on the stroke of half-time, the Armenian putting Paulo Fonseca's side ahead with a well-timed header from Jordan Veretout's corner.

Genoa then equalised - through Marko Pjaca - early in the second half, as the game threatened to turn into something of a slog for the visitors.

Instead, Mkhitaryan redoubled his efforts: first running on to Bruno Peres's cutback into the box to steer his side back in front, before clinching the result in the closing stages with a pinpoint volley from Pedro's brilliantly measured cross.

With the international break now to come, Roma head into a two-week break with three wins in the last eight days.
