Roma's four-game winning run was snapped by bottom three team Empoli after they were held to a goalless draw on the road at the Carlo Castellani Stadium last Sunday, as per BBC Sport.

La Maggica controlled 65 percent of ball possessions throughout the game and had 23 shots and six shots on target compared to Empoli's eight and three, but the visitors still failed to convert a goal.

It was the second drawn match for head coach Luciano Spalletti's side this season after a 2-2 tie with newly-promoted club Cagliari in the second round back in August. It was also the second time I Giallorossi was shutout in a match this term since they were nipped by Fiorentina, 0-1, in the middle of September.

The draw still earned Roma a point, however, but kept the club four points behind defending champions and current league leaders Juventus in the overall standings.

Meanwhile, Bologna suffered its sixth straight winless game as the 10-man squad lost to rising team Fiorentina, 1-0, at their own home ground of Renato Dall'Ara Stadium last Saturday, Goal reported.

Italian defender Daniele Gastaldello was booked with a direct red card and was sent off in the 29th minute after fouling Fiorentina forward Nikola Kalinic inside the penalty area.

Kalinic converted the ensuing spot kick to break the deadlock, which proved to be the winning goal as both sides went scoreless after that.

It was the second loss for head coach Roberto Donadoni's squad as the team was held to a draw in the other four matches of the previous six rounds.
