Roma blow two-goal lead at Empoli

ROME, Nov 4 (Reuters) - AS Roma blew a two-goal lead and the chance to join Inter Milan at the top of Serie A when they were held to a 2-2 draw at struggling Empoli on Sunday.

Sebastian Giovinco, with a splendid stoppage-time free kick, earned Empoli a draw that lifted the Tuscans out of the relegation zone.

Ighli Vannucchi pulled one back for Empoli with a long-distance strike in the 67th after Ludovic Giuly and Matteo Brighi had put the visitors in command in the first half.

French midfielder Giuly opened the score in the 13th minute with a precise shot into the far corner after some neat passing at the edge of the box.

Brighi headed in a cross from Brazilian winger Mancini to double the lead in 32nd.

Roma are third with 22 points from 11 games, two points behind Inter, who visit fourth-placed Juventus in the late Sunday game.

Fiorentina are second with 23 points thanks to Saturday's win 1-0 at Lazio.

AC Milan, ninth with 14 points, are still looking for their first league win of the season at the San Siro after Saturday's goalless draw with Torino.
