In the 15th round of Serie A at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Roma clashed with Fiorentina.

The match unfolded in a balanced contest, lacking an abundance of goal-scoring moments and significant threats at either end. Roma surprised Fiorentina with a swift goal as Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring, courtesy of Paulo Dybala's assist. This goal marked Lukaku's seventh in the current Serie A campaign.

In the second half, the visitors took control of the ball and aimed to equalize. In the 64th minute, Zalewski received his second yellow card, leaving Roma with ten men, and shortly after, Fiorentina leveled the score. In the remaining time, the Viola attempted to snatch victory, while Roma resolutely defended. Interestingly, the Wolves managed just one shot on target throughout the entire match against Fiorentina's goal. Moments before the end, Lukaku's harsh foul left his team with nine men, yet Roma held onto the draw.
