Though I Giallorossi have spent most of the 21st century among the Top 3 of Serie A, we’ve witnessed a notable drop in form over the past 2 seasons. A typical season featured a pitched battle between Roma and Napoli for the position of runners-up after Juve. This all changed in 2018 when Claudio Ranieri led La Lupa on a disastrous start to the season. They ended up 6th, barely scraping together a Europa League qualification.
2019/20 was a bit better, but still an overall disappointment. Paulo Fonseca, the newly-appointed manager, clearly has a better grasp of Roma’s strengths. However, the road back to where they were 3 years ago is still ahead of them, and it’s not an easy one. At odds of 3.75 for a Top 4 Finish, top online bookmakers still see them as Italy’s sixth-best team. A return to the Champions League will not be easy to achieve, let alone a repeat of 2001’s Scudetto win.
Roma Key Players
The biggest issue Fonesca faces is the fact Roma lacks the financial strength of its biggest rivals.
As a result, their recruitment process focuses on grooming promising young stars and reselling them for profit. A quick look at the current roster illustrates this perfectly. Players like Nicolò Zaniolo, Amadou Diawara, and Gonzalo Villar have been attracting a lot of attention during their time with Roma. Of course, that’s not even counting recent departures of said young players (and the great deals Roma got for them.)
The trend is likely to continue with recent arrivals such as Marash Kumbulla, Carles Pérez, and Roger Ibañez. It’s clear Fonesca is planning for the long term. For Roma betting in 2020, though, this may just mean that we won’t see a significant improvement yet.
The Derby della Capitale is a worldwide known game and arguably one of the most heated and emotional rivalries in world football. Lazio are not only the club Roma share the city with but also their stadium – Stadio Olimpico.
The Derby del Sole is another notable rivalry in Italian football which pits Roma against Napoli. The ‘Derby of the Sun’ is up there when it comes to heated animosities but the Giallorossi also vie fierce battles with the likes of Juventus, Milan and Inter.
The Yellow and Reds are a club of rich history which is close to one hundred years long. A.S. Roma were established in the summer of 1927 following the merger of Rome-based low-tier clubs – Roman FC, Fortitudo-Pro Roma SGS and SS Alba-Audace.
The capital stood firm behind the union which was aimed at giving the more illustrious clubs from the North a strong rival. The merger, however, was opposed and resisted by Lazio, who had close ties with the Italian army and General Vaccaro.
Over a century, Roma grew into a three-time Serie A winner and the holder of nine Coppa Italia titles. Roma also have two Supercoppa Italiana trophies on their shelves, along with a Serie B title.
