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...

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.

Perotti was outstanding from the second he came on as a 57th-minute substitute for Stephan El Shaarawy, while Leandro Paredes oozed class on his return to the Roma midfield. What was most impressive,...

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...

Thomas Vermaelen, Juan Jesus fail to fire in Giallorossi debuts

Roma earned a valuable 1-1 draw in Portugal after the sending off of Thomas Vermaelen and will decide the tie with Porto back at the Olympis Stadium.

AS Roma appeared to have had the opening leg of their Champions League playoff match against Porto by the scruff of the neck following Felipe's 21st-minute own goal on Wednesday, before promptly melting down in front of the Dragoes exciting-but-flaky attack.

Andre Silva levelled the score for the hosts just after the hour following Emerson Palmieri's handball, and Roma could count themselves very lucky that the Portuguese club's finishing was as poor as it was after Thomas Vermaelen's red card left...

Roma's UCL playoff clash vs. Porto will define season before it's even begun

Thomas Vermaelen says he is delighted with the warm welcome he has received and is impressed by the quality of the team.

While most of Rome has drifted away from the punishing August heat for the traditional Ferragosto exodus to the sea or mountains, Luciano Spalletti's Roma are hard at work preparing for their Champions League playoff against Porto on Wednesday, a clash that will define the Giallorossi's season just as most of Italy begins its summer holidays.

Qualification to the group stage wouldn't just give Roma a crack at Europe's best and give Italian football three clubs in the continent's top competition...
