Roma kept up the pressure on Serie A leader Juventus with a comfortable 3-1 win against Atalanta on Saturday which saw the capital side equal the club record number of victories in a season.
Rodrigo Taddei, Adem Ljajic and Gervinho scored to help Roma to its 24th league win of the season, matching the record by Luciano Spalletti's side in 2007-08 and achieved again under Claudio Ranieri two years later.
Giulio Migliaccio headed in a consolation for Atalanta.
Roma moved provisionally five points behind Juventus, which visits Udinese on Monday.
Atalanta remained in eighth place following a second successive defeat as it lost ground in the race for a Europa League place.
Earlier, Sassuolo picked up a vital point in its fight against relegation as it drew 1-1 at home to fellow struggler Cagliari.
