Giallorossi make it seven consecutive league wins.
May 26, 2013 will be a date forever etched in the memories of both Roma and Lazio supporters, after the latter defeated their bitter rivals in the Coppa Italia final.
The Giallorossi returned to pre-season training this summer under a torrent of abuse from their frustrated fans, and combined with sales of key players it appeared that Rudi Garcia may have been walking into a crisis.
However, that early anger has been transformed into both optimism and joy as Roma sit atop the Serie A table with seven wins in seven ahead of the international break.
Three answered goals ensured that they conquered the San Siro on Saturday night, with a previously unbeaten Inter Milan side unable to cope with their counter-attacking football while also struggling to break down their formidable defence.
Garcia has now masterminded a side that has scored 20 goals and conceded just once in seven games, and talk of a Scudetto is inevitably growing.
With the benefit of the evergreen Francesco Totti continuing to shine, the Romans have no European distractions this year which therefore gives Garcia all week to prepare his men for the next Serie A clash.
It is something that Antonio Conte benefited from in his first year in charge at Juventus, and the French tactician will be aiming to follow suit as he continues to win back the supporters.
Elsewhere, the Bianconeri were also winners on the weekend as they piled further misery on Massimiliano Allegri and AC Milan.
The Rossoneri are now 11 points adrift of the Champions League places, but will be hopeful that with several key individuals returning from injury after the international break that they can produce a comeback similar to last year.
For Conte, it was the ideal reaction from his players after a disappointing week in Europe in which the Juve boss accused the media of trying to “destabilise” the team.
Napoli also bounced back in emphatic fashion from their disappointment in London on Tuesday night with a 4-0 win over Livorno. Despite the absence of the injured Gonzalo Higuain, Rafa Benitez masterminded a comfortable victory which keeps them in contention with Roma and Juve.
Meanwhile, there is another story brewing in Serie A as newcomers Hellas Verona continue to establish themselves back in the top flight and sealed a commanding 4-1 win in Bologna.
The win leaves them in fifth place and dreaming of Europe while their fellow promoted sides continue to struggle.
