Roma were a team founded in the early 19th century and by a merger arranged by the Fascist regime. Roma have participated in the top-tier of Italian football for all of their existence except for in the 1951–52 season, and last season finished second in Serie A. Roma have won the Serie A three times, less than most people may think, but they can claim an impressive nine Coppa Italia titles and two Supercoppa Italiana titles.
On the European front Roma won the Fairs Cup in 1960–61. They did come close to a European Cup victory in 1983–84, but lost out to Liverpool in the final. More recently they finished as runners up in the UEFA Cup Final in a two legged defeat against Inter Milan. Francesco Totti and Danielle De Rossi are Roma’s most famous players and both have been long term servants to the club. Considered as one of the best teams in Italy, Roma are probably the most likely contenders to prevent Juventus from achieving their fifth consecutive Serie A title.

Roma manager, Luciano Spalletti has dramatically changed Roma's fortunes since taking over in January 2016 after Rudi Garcia was sacked leaving the club 5th in Serie A and void of ideas. Spalletti lost his second match in charge to Juventus but he has remained unbeaten in the league since.
Spalletti has installed new found belief in his side as they look to finish runner-up in Serie A to champions, Juventus and qualify to next seasons UEFA Champions League.
Mohammed Salah and Miralem Pjanic have chipped in with goals from midfield, with Edin Dzeko leading the line in attack. Club legend, Francesco Totti edges closer to a fairytale ending with his boyhood club amid rumours that he may still have one more season in his locker. Totti has often been used from the bench this season and has netted four goals, two of which came in a memorable 3-2 win against Torino ,where he scored twice in the last five minutes after coming on when Roma were 3-1 down.
Surely with Spealletti at the helm, if the Giallorossi can replicate their form under him in the second half of this season over a whole campaign, then the gap at the top may be even closer.
