Roma continued their nightmare week by throwing away a two-goal lead in the final seconds to draw 2-2 at newly promoted Cagliari.

A first half Diego Perotti penalty and Kevin Strootman's first Serie A goal since January 2014 less than a minute after the restart weren't enough to take the three points back to the Italian capital, and Roma face yet another inquest.

How can Luciano Spalletti's side even dream of challenging an all-conquering Juventus when they continue to show the same psychological...

Cagliari match gives Roma the chance to bounce back from a poor week

With Daniele De Rossi receiving his 14th career red card as Roma were defeated by Porto, take a look at his red card history.

It took less than a week for the early season bubble of optimism to burst.

Roma's disastrous Champions League exit at the hands of Porto in Tuesday night's playoff was a cruel reminder of their place in the world -- a middling club from a middling league that's not ready for Europe's top table.

Luciano Spalletti's side now have the less glamorous task of rebuilding their continental reputation in the slog that is the Europa League, while showing that the enthusiasm created by last week's thrilling...

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...

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.
