Dzeko hits historic goal mark for Roma

Comments
The Bosnian striker hit a mark that the Italian club hadn't seen reached in nearly a century with his 27th strike of the season

It's safe to say Edin Dzeko has found a comfortable home at Roma. 

The former Manchester City striker signed for the Italian side in the summer of 2015, and while Roma likely knew they had landed a top goal-scorer, they probably didn't know he'd be hitting marks not seen at the club since the 1930s. 

Balotelli hits personal best 

The 31-year-old netted twice on Sunday, with his second goal being his 27th of the Serie A season. The total is good enough to be Serie A's top scorer, but it's also a goal total no Roma player has hit in Serie A since the 1934/35 campaign. 

The 4-1 win leaves Roma second in the Serie A table, a point clear of Napoli and seven back of Juventus.
