Roma mistakenly added midfielder Amadou Diawara (23) to the Under-22 slice of their validated duo register when he ought have been added to their average 25-man roster.
Because Diawara took measure in the match, which ended 0-0, the Sporting Judge handed all three points to Verona, which remains Roma’s only rout of the season.
