Roma to wear special Totti shirts

Substitute Diego Perotti connected on a volley following a free kick from Radja Nainggolan for the victor.

David Beckham has paid tribute to Roma's Francesco Totti and has revealed that he nearly joined the Italian club just to play alongside the legend.

Roma will be hoping Genoa - whose relegation worries are at an end - will not provide major opposition and allow them to get on with giving Totti a suitable send-off following his remarkable career in the capital.

It was a dramatic last match, beating Genoa 3-2 with Diego Perotti's last-gasp strike to secure second place and automatic Champions League qualification.

Totti, who will be playing his 784th game for the Italian side as they host Genoa at the Stadio Olimpico.

Edin Dzeko equalized in the 10th and Roma's future captain Daniele De Rossi appeared to have the victor in the 74th but Darko Lazovic equalized for Genoa five minutes later in a wild finish.

Gianluca Lapadula equalized for Milan with a penalty in the 72nd but Milan defender Gabriel Paletta was sent off with his second yellow card three minutes later.

Before kickoff, Totti went and saluted Roma's hard-core "ultra" fans in the "curva sud" - southern end - of the stadium.

His unwavering loyalty to Roma and his superb goalscoring record since then have made him an iconic figure, not just in Italy, but football worldwide.

Roma's 28th win of the campaign left Luciano Spalletti's men in second place, one point ahead of Napoli and four behind champions Juventus, who sealed a record sixth consecutive Serie A title last week.
