AS Roma find themselves further into crisis after going down to a 1-0 defeat at Siena.

They are now 14th in Serie A and six points off city-rivals Lazio and champions Inter Milan at the top.

Liechtenstein forward Mario Frick scored the winner just before the break as he reached Massimo Maccarone's cross just ahead of Philippe Mexès.

Any hopes Roma had of salvaging something from the match disappeared after having both central defenders - Christian Panucci and Mexès - sent off.

Juventus are not going much better as they were beaten 2-1 at home to Palermo.

Former Juventus man Fabrizio Miccoli put the Sicilians ahead before Alessandro Del Piero restored parity with a superb free-kick.

But two minutes later, the home side were reduced to ten-men when former Liverpool midfielder Mohamed Sissoko was dismissed for a second bookable offence.

Georgian striker Levan McHedlidze then grabbed the winner in the 81st minute with his first ever goal in Serie A.
