But Pioli says Milan players are not satisfied with the point and defended goalkeeper Ciprian Tătărușanu.
"I go home satisfied with the performance but we do not have to look at the table. We can't hide it, at the end of the game the players were not satisfied," Pioli told Sky Sport.
“We played against a strong opponent. They used set pieces better than us but this is the right way, this performance gives us further convictions.
“There is a positive environment, full of harmony.
“We give our best every single day. I like to emphasize the spirit of the team, it is a generous group. We are second to no one in terms of determination. We must continue with this attitude."
Roma struck their first goal making the most of a mistake from Tatarusanu.
“Mistakes are part of football, Tatarusanu missed the ball," said Pioli.
“He is a strong goalkeeper, it was at his debut, a little something that may have had an impact."
