Derby of the Sun Napoli take on Roma in Serie A today, with the Giallorossi look to reignite their title challenge whilst putting defeat against Panathinaikos in the Europa League behind them.

A crazy 5 minutes before the interval cost Roma a place in the final 32 of Europa League. After losing the first leg in Greece 7 days ago, it had to be unthinkable that a defeat would happen on home turf yesterday evening. But think again, Roma started the game brightly when Vucinic tested the palms of Tzorvas then Cerci was fouled. This lead up to the opening goal of the game when a John Arne Riise free-kick took a [...]

Mirko Vucinic grabbed the only goal of the game as Roma put Thursday nightmare behind them. A 1-0 win over a very plucky but slightly dirty Catania side now put them 5 points behind Inter and 2 ahead of Ac Milan in 3rd. Roma took the lead after 17 minutes when Vucinic unmarked volleyed in from 6 yards past Andujar. Roma really struggled to add to the goal count with Vucinic, Menez and Rodrigo Taddei wasting chances. That win puts [...]

It is about time an Italian team lifted the Europa League Trophy. Teams from seven different nations have won the UEFA Cup since Parma triumphed in 1999, a barren run that does not reflect the success of Italian clubs in the competition – no country has produced more winners. Four Serie A clubs reached the last 32 last year, but only Udinese, quarter final losers to Werder Bremen, went any further. Roma and Juventus, who face Panathinaikos and Ajax respectively [...]

The Giallorossi dominated Saturday evening, soundly defeating Palermo during their round 24 match, courtesy of one aka Matteo Brighi. Roma’s well-organized attack early-on, met by a laid back Palermo XI content to play fetch, yielded several corners but no damaging finish. As expected Palermo took a crack at it on the counterattack, but were also taking advantage of the space given to Federico Balzaretti to move forward—as Marco Motta seemed willing to concede ground. 8 minutes in, Francesco Totti would [...]

Hot off the press Roma’s Cicinho is Sao Paulo bound.The Brazilian side Sao Paulo confirmed a loan deal for the full-back and Cicinho’s immediate response was, “I am living a dream! I’m going home.” This is no ordinary return to the homeland as the player has previously dressed for his new club back in 2003 to 2005 before his move to Real Madrid. “I have just left a meeting with Roma to discuss my contract. I’m living a dream! I [...]

Stefano Okaka was the hero at the Olimpico as he netted the winner 3 minutes from time. Roma were without their trident of Totti, Vucinic and Menez. So the Beast Julio Baptista started up front on his known in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Roma took the lead when last week hero John Arne Riise smashed in a volley from the edge of the area past Curci. Siena got back into the game just before half time Simone Vergassola’s pounced on a [...]

As John Arne Riise ghosted past the Juventus defence to nod home unmarked i think Ranieri really enjoyed that getting one over his old team. Since last October the revival under Ranieri for the Roman’s have been in brilliant form and calmly eases themselves into the top 4. Currently sitting in 3rd place 2 points behind Ac Milan, it looked a total different story at the start of the season where Roma wimped in the first 2 games against Genoa [...]

Revenge, A Dish Best Served Cold Ditched by Juventus in the spring of last year, their former manager Claudio Ranieri stuck it to the homeside on Saturday night, as his Roma side beat a pathetic looking Juventus. Roma lost Luca Toni early on due to a knee injury and was replaced by Francesco Totti. In a tactical first half both teams were lined up in the same 4-3-1-2 formation with limited chances and was more of a midfield battle. Some [...]

by Scot Munroe/serieaweekly - I think the time of Ciro Ferrara’s reign is coming to an end after this 1-0 away defeat to Chievo. This is their first ever defeat at Chievo and it has now reached boiling point. Rumours in England and in Italy are saying either Rafa Benitez or even Guus Hiddink will take charge. Juventus had 7 players out either injured, suspended or at the African Cup of Nations. The only goal of the game came after [...]

For anyone to say Serie A is boring, needs to sit down and watch Internazionale vs. Siena. This match had it all. Siena took a shock lead that woke the league leaders up and they duly overtook the Tuscan visitors with an excellent finish from Diego Milito and a superb Wesley Sneijder free-kick. Albin Ekdal restored parity within a minute and continued to play a fine game for the following 50 minutes. Man of the match, Massimo Maccarone put the [...]
