Roma 4, Chievo 0: Edin Dzeko warms up for Liverpool re-match with two-goal burst

The former Manchester City centre-forward struck in the 39th and 66th minutes following his goal in Tuesday's 5-2 semi-final, first leg loss.

Dzeko fed off Aleksandar Kolarov, another ex-City man, who provided the perfect cross for his first.

In the second half he thanked Radja Nainggolan for the through ball that allowed him to shake off a couple of Chievo players and fire home.

Dzeko later hit the cross bar with a stinging drive from 25 yards.
