MILAN, Italy -- Roma eased to a 3-0 win over relegation-threatened Livorno on Saturday to keep up the pressure on Serie A leader Juventus.

The home side got off to the perfect start when Adem Ljajic's cross was flicked on by a wayward Gervinho backheel for Mattia Destro to tap home in the sixth minute.

Roma doubled its lead in the 36th when Destro chipped the goalkeeper and, although Nahuel Valentini slid in for a goalline clearance, Strootman lashed home the rebound from close range.

Gervinho had a goal ruled out for offside a minute before half time, but Roma sealed the result in the 78th when Ljajic cut inside before curling a shot into the near bottom corner for his first goal since September.

Juventus hosts Sampdoria in the late kick off.
