Roma can add to new stadium joy with a win against Inter Milan

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti examines Edin Dzeko's impact for Roma and expects he will top Serie A's scoring charts this season.

"We look forward to building a stadium to showcase to the world." Once Roma posted James Pallotta's statement on Twitter, at the end of a tense night for Romanisti, champagne corks could be heard popping across the Eternal City. That announcement finally brought a happy end to a saga that has dragged on for five years and at several points in the last few weeks looked to be heading towards a messy final act, with a flurry of legal action and fan protests against a beleaguered city administration....

Inter's brilliant form, Champions League push must continue vs. Roma

Whatever Pioli is doing at Inter is working. But it'll be tested against Roma, who are in equally good form.

When Helenio Herrera was manager of Inter in the 1960s, one of his famous innovations was to put messages up in the dressing room to motivate his players and focus their minds. The most famous of these was his winning formula: "Class + Preparation + Fitness + Intelligence = THE TITLE." Last week, pictures emerged from inside Inter's gym at Appiano Gentile, showing that Stefano Pioli has maybe taken some inspiration from il Mago.

Spalletti makes clear his future isn't tied to Roma or Francesco Totti

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti examines Edin Dzeko's impact for Roma and expects he will top Serie A's scoring charts this season.

"If I don't win anything, I'll leave." When the Italian press picked up Luciano Spalletti's interview with France Football just before Christmas, Romanisti didn't know how to take it. Was it supposed to be a threat to his players ahead of their match at Juventus, or a warning to the club to not sell their star assets in January? With his contract up in the summer, was he gambling on a trophy in May before departing for pastures new?

Since then the Tuscan has done little to calm supporters' nerves,...

Roma put on a show, scoring sensational goals in thrashing of Torino

Four players scored for Roma in a dominant victory over Torino at the Stadio Olimpico.
Edin Dzeko struck first as Roma ran out 4-1 winners in a superb showing against Torino on Sunday.

Roma put on a show of sensational goals as they warmed up for their Europa League return leg with Villareal by sweeping aside a spirited but porous Torino 4-1 to maintain both their 100 percent home record and second spot in Serie A.

Edin Dzeko set Luciano Spalletti's side on their way with his 19th league strike of the season, a beautifully drilled shot from just outside the area after a neat one-two with Radja Nainggolan in the 10th minute. That was swiftly followed up by Mohamed Salah's first...

With Edin Dzeko in red-hot form, Roma are as exciting as they've been in years

Edin Dzeko
Edin Dzeko's goalscoring form has made Roma as exciting as they've been in years.

While the Giallorosso half of Rome basks in the glow of Thursday's splendid 4-0 hammering of Villarreal, which fired a warning shot to the rest of Europe, Luciano Spalletti's side are back at work preparing for a clash of attacking titans, with Sunday's visit of free-scoring Torino at the Stadio Olimpico bringing hat-trick hero Edin Dzeko face to face with Toro's own red-hot goal ace Andrea Belotti.

Serie A's top scorer with 18 goals, Dzeko made headlines around Europe with a wonderful 20-minute...

Dzeko's reversal of form has Roma among favourites for Europa League

Edin Dzeko notched a second-half hat trick to help seal Roma's first leg win against Villarreal.
Preview the latest Serie A action, as Radja Nainggolan continues to heat up for AS Roma.

When Edin Dzeko's daughter Una woke up on Friday morning, there was a gift waiting from her papa. Dzeko picked it up for her on a work trip to Spain. It was an adidas capitano, the official match ball of the Europa League, and he wanted her to have it.

"I'm taking it home to Una," Dzeko told reporters at the Estadio Ceramica, which he all but smashed to pieces. Not for the first time this season, Dzeko scored a hat trick in the Europa League. The surprise was that it came here.
