Financially safe, but no one will forget the great season the Roma played in 2006/07, which led to them winning the league and Champions League.
Now, the team is back in the race to the title.
They will face Juventus in the Europa League on Wednesday night and then they will take on Atalanta in the last 16.
But first, there is a Champions League group stage match on Wednesday, with Napoli v Roma in the first leg, followed by Juventus v Napoli in the second leg.
The tie between the two is scheduled for 5:00pm, with the winner advancing to the quarterfinals.
The winner of the second tie will be seeded directly into the next round, which starts on April 10.
In other words, the second-placed team will have the opportunity to face a top-four rival, as opposed to being drawn in.
Juventus, who are favourites to win the league, have already qualified for the Europa Cup.
In Italy, they have won the first-leg at Stadio Olimpico against Sampdoria, but are now aiming to make it three consecutive finals wins in Serie A. “I think the fans will be very happy to see us,” said coach Antonio Conte.
“We are not at the same level as Napoli, but we will be in the Champions League quarter-finals.”
The only other big clubs to qualify for the Champions’ League this season are Lazio, AC Milan and Inter Milan.
However, there are many other big teams from Italy, which will be playing in the competition, who have not qualified yet.
Juventus’ return to the Champions league group stage matches will be their third since the start of the season, and they have been playing with a great amount of energy.
“The season was difficult,” Conte said.
“But we are now more ready to face our rivals.
We have two young players who have played a lot of football, including [Gianluigi] Laudrup. “
Our players are very fit.
