Nainggolan's work rate cancelled out by De Rossi's red card in loss to Porto

With Daniele De Rossi receiving his 14th career red card as Roma were defeated by Porto, take a look at his red card history.
Radja Nainggolan was one of the only players who looked up to the challenge in a frustrating 3-0 loss to Porto.

Roma captain Daniele De Rossi led the charge with a foolish 38th-minute straight red card as Roma two-footed their first leg advantage from the Champions League playoff with Porto straight into the Stadio Olimpico showers, where they were promptly flushed into the sewer.

Having conceded an appallingly soft goal in the seventh minute when Felipe was given a free header six yards out from Otavio's deep free kick, Roma came back at Porto only for De Rossi to fly into Maxi Pereira's shins. Emerson repeated...

Luciano Spalletti challenges Roma to be fearless in UCL playoff vs. Porto

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Mark Donaldson predict which of the top clubs will join the group stage in the Champions League.

"We've been waiting for this match for eight months," Roma coach Luciano Spalletti said during Monday's news conference ahead of the season-defining Champions League playoff return leg against Porto on Tuesday. "If a player can't manage fear, risk or danger, he'll also be scared of success. If a player is tense about a match we've wanted for eight months he can't be at Roma, because if we win he'll also be afraid of what comes after."

Whether he meant them to or not, Spalletti's words sounded...

Paredes stars with help from Paredes and Salah as Roma ease past Udinese

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti explains if any team in Serie A can prevent Juventus from winning a sixth straight league title.
Diego Perotti scored a brace as Roma overcame Udinese.
Diego Perotti scored twice as Roma began their League season in fine style.

Roma sent a message to the rest of Serie A that they are serious about challenging Juventus' dominance with a 4-0 thumping of an unimaginative Udinese, in which man-of-the-match Diego Perotti scored twice, with Edin Dzeko and Mohamed Salah also netting. Roma are now unbeaten in 18 league games.

Totti begins final Roma campaign, but will fans attend at Stadio Olimpico?

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti explains if any team in Serie A can prevent Juventus from winning a sixth straight league title.
Roma legend Francesco Totti is preparing for what many think will be his final season with the club.

On Saturday, Francesco Totti begins his 25th season as a professional footballer. The final chapter of a career-long love affair with his hometown team Roma that looked to be ending early, and in the stormiest of fashions, before he finally ended a four-month standoff by signing a one-year contract extension in June. The legendary No. 10 will be 40 in a few weeks, and this year will almost certainly be his last in Giallorosso. However, instead of fans flocking to catch one last glimpse of...

Season preview: Juventus favoured, but Roma and Napoli will contend

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti explains if any team in Serie A can prevent Juventus from winning a sixth straight league title.

The upcoming season in Serie A feels an awful lot like the Giro d'Italia in 1930. Back then, La Gazzetta dello Sport editor Emilio Colombo feared other riders, cycling fans and readers of his paper were losing interest after the dominant Alfredo Binda had won the race four years running. So Colombo decided to make him an offer. He wrote a cheque for what he might expect to earn in exchange for Binda's withdrawal from that year's race. Binda accepted.

Following the signings of Mehdi Benatia, Dani...
