Another brilliant home win as Roma thrash Parma (3-0)

Roma returned to action after the international break in emphatic style, as they beat Parma 3-0 at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday afternoon. The opener by the Spaniard Mayoral and a stunning brace by Mkhitaryan were enough to build a comfortable home win, with Pedro on Fonseca's starting line-up and playing a good attacking performance until substitution by Pellegrini on minute 80.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan made it five goals in two games with another brilliant brace for Paulo Fonseca's side, building on Borja Mayoral's opener to ensure the three points were comfortably picked up in the capital.

In truth, the final scoreline could - and perhaps should - have been even bigger, with Mkhitaryan having chances to get a second successive hat-trick and both Pedro and Jordan Veretout going close on multiple occasions.

At the other end, however, Antonio Mirante was a virtual spectator - able to enjoy a comprehensive team performance along with the Roma fans at home.

Full-back Leonardo Spinazzola provided the pinpoint assist for Mayoral's opener, spotting his run to play the Spaniard in perfectly to prod a shot beyond Luigi Sepe.

Mkhitaryan then latched on to a loose ball 30 yards from goal to lash it home brutally - a thunderous strike that adds a Goal of the Season contender to his burgeoning collection.

The Armenian's second was more straightforward; all he had to do was to get a final touch, as Rick Karsdorp's inswinging cross found him unmarked at the back post.

Roma are back in action on Thursday - they travel to face Cluj in the Europa League.
