Roma and Inter in goalless game

Rome, March 2: Roma saw their home run of eight consecutive wins in the Italian Serie A halted when they drew goalless with Inter Milan.

Roma threatened to score as Gervinho and Adem Ljajic had opportunities, but a dogged Inter defence managed to keep the slate clean, reports Xinhua.

In the 33rd minute, Mattia Destro thought he had broken the deadlock, only to be flagged offside.

Inter gradually grew in confidence and Rodrigo Palacio went close to scoring when he headed Ricky Alvarez’s left-wing cross just over.

Roma then wasted another chance in the 75th minute when Miralem Pjanic was denied on a solo run by Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic.
