Cote d'Ivoire winger Gervinho continued his scintillating form for Roma as they defeated visiting Udinese 3-1 in the Italian Serie A on Wednesday night.

The 28-year-old star netted his second league goal in three days to take the Romans three up in the 63rd minute, before the visitors got a consolation.

Gervinho's form has coincided with Roma's upturn in fortunes and the goal – his fifth in eight games this season – capped a fifth straight league win for the Serie A leaders.

Roma and Egypt star Mohamed Salah missed the game through suspension, while Mali and Ghana internationals Molla Wague and Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu played the full game for Udinese.
