Roma's march towards a 53-year-old European record finally ended at Torino thanks to their former player Alessio Cerci.
The attacker struck a 63rd-minute equaliser to force a 1-1 draw at the Stadio Olimpico.
Had the runaway Serie A leaders clinched an 11th straight win they would have matched Tottenham's achievement of the 1960-61 season, in which Spurs opened a double-winning campaign with the same run of victories before drawing with Manchester City.
Kevin Strootman set the Giallorossi on their way to emulating the Londoners' record but Rudi Garcia's men appeared a little off the boil in Turin and soon found themselves under siege from a determined Torino side.
And it was Cerci, who made his Roma debut at the age of 16 over nine years ago, who would prove their undoing shortly after the hour mark, putting the brakes on his boyhood club's bid to make the history books with a well-taken equaliser.
