MILAN (AP) — Edin Dzeko scored a late stunning goal to snatch a 1-0 win for Roma at Torino in their opening Serie A game on Sunday.
The match appeared headed for a 0-0 draw with only two minutes remaining. But Roma debutant Justin Kluivert — who had been brought on in the 70th minute — went past several defenders before putting in a pinpoint cross for Dzeko to volley in under the crossbar from a tight angle.
Dzeko had hit the upright twice. Aleksandar Kolarov had also hit the woodwork for Roma, as had Tomas Rincon for Torino.
Torino also had a goal disallowed on video review early in the second half as scorer Iago Falque was marginally offside.
Roma finished third last season, 18 points behind champion Juventus and five above fourth-place Inter Milan which visits Sassuolo in one of four late matches.
