Roma held to draw despite Totti's brace

Francesco Totti scored two goals for Roma against Catania on Saturday but it wasn't enough to hand the capital side all three points as the two teams played to a 2-2 draw at the Stadio Olimpico.

Roma entered the match needing three points to improve its European hopes, but Totti failed to capitalize on a ninth-minute penalty kick when his shot was saved by goalkeeper Juan Pablo Carrizo.

Totti was able to beat Carrizo early in the second half with a left-footed effort from outside the penalty area, but Catania answered back five minutes later when Francesco Lodi converted a spot kick.

Lodi then set up a second goal for the visitors with a free kick that Giovanni Marchese finished off to make it 2-1.

However, Totti hauled his team back level in the final 15 minutes when he scored from a Miralem Pjanic pass.

The result leaves Roma without a win in its last five games and in danger of missing out on European competition.

Fiorentina 1, Lecce 0

Lecce, Italy - Fiorentina secured its place in Serie A next season after claiming a 1-0 win at Lecce on Saturday courtesy of a first-half goal from Alessio Cerci.

The Viola needed just one point from their last two games to remain in the top flight and Cerci helped to ease the nerves in the 35th minute when he took a pass from Ruben Olivera and beat goalkeeper Massimiliano Benassi with a left- footed shot.

Fiorentina nearly doubled its advantage early in the second half when Mattia Cassani struck the post, while Lecce was denied the equalizer a little later when Andrea Esposito's close-range header hit the crossbar.

Lecce is now winless in its last five games and will be relegated on Sunday if Genoa earns a point at Udinese.
