Egypt ace Mohamed Salah scored a goal and dished out another in AS Roma's 3-1 away victory over rivals Napoli in the Serie A on Saturday.

Goals were scored by ex-Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko just two minutes from half-time before the Bosnian completed his personal brace with a header nine minutes after the break.

Senegalese defender Kalidou Koulibaly pulled one back for the hosts following a corner by Algeria left-back Faouzi Ghoulam in the 58th minute before Salah came to restore his side's two-goal advantage five minutes from time.

After setting up Dzeko for Roma's first goal of the evening, Salah turned from provider to scorer at the end of the second half when he went through on goal before slotting past the keeper calmly for his side's third.

It was the fourth goal and the second assist of the season for the former Chelsea winger.

The win took Roma to second place of the Serie A table on 16 points, two adrift of leaders and defending champions Juventus.
