For the first time since 2001, Roma is showing signs that it could win a major trophy this year. The Giallorossi fired a warning to the rest of the clubs in Serie A and the Champions League, with a 7-0 thrashing of Catania Calcio at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday. It was one of the most destructive results in Europe this season, showcasing Roma's impressive array of attacking talent. Granted, Catania had a man sent off in each half, but the second was just two minutes from time, after Roma had already taken a 7-0 lead. Defender Christian Panucci scored twice as did midfielder Simone Perrotta, while Brazilian Alessandro Mancini, Vincenzo Montella and Francesco Totti each added one to the score sheet. It was the Giallorossi's fourth consecutive victory after a series of sub-par performances in October. The win leaves Roma four points adrift of leader Inter Milan, and one shy of Palermo, which lost on Saturday night. If anything, Roma's goals highlighted Catania's poor defending; the Sardinian's marking was poor, particularly on set pieces, and they were unable to adequately clear the danger on several occasions. The result should prove to be a huge morale boost for Roma ahead of its Champions League clash at Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday. Read the original story...
