Italy: Roma win streak ends with 1-1 Udinese draw
UDINE, Italy (AP) -- Roma's three-match Serie A-winning streak ended with a 1-1 draw at 10-man Udinese on Saturday.
Erik Lamela put Roma ahead 20 minutes in at Stadio Friuli by knocking in a rebound of a header from Alessandro Florenzi that banged off the crossbar.
Luis Muriel equalized for Udinese in the 62nd, freeing himself from two defenders before shooting in under the legs of Roma goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg.
Udinese finished a man down after defender Thomas Heurtaux was shown a questionable direct red for tripping Florenzi in the 73rd.
American midfielder Michael Bradley did not suit up for Roma due to suspension.
Roma moved within a point of sixth-place Fiorentina, which visits Lazio on Sunday.
Udinese, which has only one home loss - to leader Juventus - is three points behind Roma in ninth.
