Giuseppe Sculli put the home side in front on four minutes, but Daniele De Rossi (28) then drew Roma level. Diego Milito, though, was to put Genoa back in front on 60 minutes, before De Rossi went from Roma hero to villain as he received his second booking. Milito made sure of the win with two minutes remaining as he added a third.
Nel primo tempo segna Sculli, pareggia De Rossi (espulso al 24′ della ripresa). Nella ripresa l’argentino Milito firma una doppietta, ma intanto Brighi non convalida un gol regolare di Panucci. Finale: 3-1 per i padroni di casa.
