When the season started back in August, Roma were not even considered as potential title challengers. The string of losses that the club experienced in the first 3 months left them reeling in the wrong end of the table. Fast forward a couple of months later and the Romans are within 8 points of leaders and defending champions Inter.
Claudio Ranieri seems to be feeding his squad with some sort of magic pill because the form they are displaying has got me really worried – considering the fact that i am a great admirer of both Milan teams. Their captain Francesco Totti is enjoying the form of his life and with 10 goals to his name, you can be sure that the former Italy international has one eye on the title.
Coming back to Roma’s nearest threat Milan, the rossoneri are in trouble of losing their second place positon to Roma if they don’t up their game. Dinho is back to his old form although he seems to be getting in the news for all the wrong reasons. Earlier this week, Milan slapped him with a fine for partying in the run up to their match with Inter. Ronaldinho should know better. This is what got him kicked out of Barca in the first place and he should not take the faith Leonardo has put in him for granted. Its really going to be an amazing race to the scudetto trophy and it still is pretty hard one to call.
