MONTREAL (AP) - Edin Dzeko and Radja Nainggolan scored to help Italian club Roma beat the Montreal Impact 2-0 in an exhibition game Wednesday night.

Roma took advantage of defender Kyle Fisher’s giveaway to score in the sixth minute. Looking to clear the ball, Fisher passed it right to Roma’s Diego Perotti, who found Dzeko alone in the 18-yard-box.

The Italians went up 2-0 in the 21st minute when Mohamed Salah found a hole between defenders Victor Cabrera and Donny Toia to hit Nainggolan in stride for an easy goal against goalkeeper Eric Kronberg.

Roma was coming off a 2-1 victory over Liverpool in St. Louis on Monday night.
