ROME (AP) -- With nearly half the stadium closed to fans as punishment for territorial chants, not much was missed in a 0-0 draw between second-place Roma and fifth-place Inter Milan in Serie A on Saturday.

Both sides came closest to scoring in the first half, when Roma had a goal from Mattia Destro waved off for offside and Inter's Rodrigo Palacio headed high.

The draw moved Roma provisionally within eight points of Juventus, which is heading toward its third consecutive title. Inter moved two points ahead of Hellas Verona in the race for the final Europa League spot.

Roma had won eight straight at home -- seven in Serie A and one in the Italian Cup.

On Sunday, Juventus visits AC Milan, third-place Napoli plays at Livorno and fourth-place Fiorentina hosts Lazio.
