AS Roma have gone backwards but all is not lost for Eusebio Di Francesco

A sobering and honest assessment of Roma's misadventures at the Bernabeu on Wednesday night made defeat no less painful for the away support. But it was hard not to find a kernel of truth in the words Monchi uttered while passing through the mixed zone shortly after full-time.

"The best Roma last season would probably have lost tonight as well," he observed, and it's hard to disagree.

Can AS Roma's players, manager react to their biggest wake-up call yet?

With a goal for Real Madrid in every competitive game, the FC crew examine what's led to Gareth Bale's sublime start to the season.

Daniele De Rossi's verdict of Wednesday night's 3-0 cuffing at the hands of Real Madrid made tough listening for Romanisti. The Roma captain spoke of being "demoralised" at having to chase the ball all night, as Luka Modric & Co. casually strutted about the Santiago Bernabeu and batted around his side like a bored cat with a ball of wool but instead of anger, he seemed resigned.

"In the past we've been given bigger slaps."

This is their level, it seems: a red and yellow carpet for Europe's top...

Edin Dzeko's frustrations get better of him as Roma can't attack or defend in Madrid

With a goal for Real Madrid in every competitive game, the FC crew examine what's led to Gareth Bale's sublime start to the season.

Roma got exactly what they deserved and what everyone expected as Real Madrid swatted them aside 3-0 without ever getting out of second gear, and the Giallorossi reverted to frightened rabbit type in the Champions League after last season's commendable showing.

A delightful Isco free kick seconds before half-time, a bullet Gareth Bale finish near the hour mark and Mariano's stoppage-time golazo were enough for the European champions to get their third straight Champions League title defence off...

Real Madrid prove vs. Roma they're not ready to be knocked off European throne

MADRID -- Three points on Real Madrid's 3-0 win vs. Roma in Group G of the UEFA Champions League.

1. Madrid, Bale not ready to be dethroned

Real Madrid have been European champions for the past three seasons, and they don't look ready to be knocked off their perch just yet. Against Roma on Wednesday, the signals were there that they could make a run for an unlikely fourth title in a row.

Roma hope another European run can kick-start their season, paper over domestic shortcomings

Roma haven't had much to smile about this season and already trail Juventus by seven points in the league.
Roma haven't had much to smile about so far this season and already trail Juventus by seven points in the league.

Last season it was the Champions League that saved Roma's bacon. The Giallorossi s arrival in the semi-finals of the competition for the first time in over three decades shocked Europe and galvanised the Italian capital, with fans dancing long into the night and even chairman James Pallotta taking a daring and costly dip in one of Rome's most famous fountains after his team's historic comeback against Barcelona.

Roma's efforts in Europe were so convincing that ahead of the first leg of the semis...

Champions League alternative fans' guide: biggest games, best kits and scariest trips

This season's Champions League is richer and more lucrative than ever. As a competition club it has become ever more exclusive too, with 19 of the 32 teams coming from Europe's top five leagues. But let's be clear about one thing: There is much more to the Champions League than Real Madrid winning it every year and Sergio Ramos being Sergio Ramos.
