Football: Pjanic gives Roma first home victory in four months

ROME (REUTERS) - Miralem Pjanic's first-half strike gave Roma a 1-0 win over Napoli in their Italian Serie A match on Saturday, their first home victory for more than four months.

Second-placed Roma are now 11 points behind Juventus, who entertain Empoli later on Saturday.

The home team scored in the 25th minute, when Alessandro Florenzi set up Pjanic after a string of precise passes and his low shot beat keeper Mariano Andujar.

Pjanic was also on target when Roma last won at home, against Inter Milan in November.
