Serie A: Ten-man Roma scores late to force 1-1 draw with Juventus

ROME (AP) — Ten-man Roma scored a late equalizer to salvage a 1-1 draw with Juventus on Monday and keep alive its faint Serie A title hopes.

Seydou Keita headed in from a corner in the 78th minute after Carlos Tevez had given Juventus the lead 14 minutes earlier with a free kick.

Tevez's goal came shortly after Vasilios Torosidis was shown a second yellow card, marking the fourth red for Roma in its last four Serie A meetings with Juventus.

It was a physical match that saw 11 yellow cards branded and no shots on goal in the first half.

It marked Roma's sixth consecutive draw at home and the Giallorossi's seventh stalemate in their last eight matches.

Juventus maintained a nine-point lead over Roma with 13 rounds remaining.
