It was a very entertaining match at the Olimpico, as Tammy Abraham provided two assists on his Roma debut and Fiorentina made it a real battle despite the early red card.
Jose Mourinho launched Abraham straight into the starting XI and it paid off, as he was brought down by Bartlomiej Dragowski for the goalkeeper’s dismissal after just 17 minutes.
The former Chelsea striker also provided two assists for Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Jordan Veretout goals, as well as his header thumping the crossbar.

Nicolò Zaniolo also saw red for two bookable offences on Nico Gonzalez and Nikola Milenkovic got a deserved temporary equaliser, but Fiorentina were eventually beaten by a Veretout brace.
