The challenge was initially deemed only a foul, but VAR upgraded it to a red.

Roma battered the visitors after that but couldn’t extend their lead.

Jose Mourinho introduced Tammy Abraham at half-time and the England striker won a penalty within a minute of coming on.

Paulo Dybala converted the spot-kick to restore Roma’s lead, but suffered a thigh injury in doing so and had to be withdrawn.
