Roma coach Luciano Spalletti admits their Scudetto hopes are all but over after yesterday's 1-1 draw with Livorno.

A late free-kick from by Alessandro Diamanti cancelled out Roma's lead courtesy of Mirko Vucinic and Spalletti admitted: "We are lacking certain qualities that at times we are able to find and put into a match situation, but in others we can't.

"Today we played well, even if we didn't create a huge amount, especially in the first half. After the equaliser the lead we had three or four chances, but as often happens we only put the right aggression into it after we run into problems.

"It all depends on Inter. We have thrown away a golden opportunity, but what can you say to the lads after a draw like this, when you concede a strike from 25 metres in their first shot on goal?

"We should have had a bit more luck, but this season it all went against us."
