Giallorossi made it six wins in six games on Sunday night.
Despite clinching their sixth consecutive win to start the Serie A season, both the coach and players alike were cautious when asked whether or not this Roma side is capable of launching a genuine Scudetto bid.
While Daniele De Rossi insisted that they are not the strongest team in the league, Rudi Garcia stressed that their objective is still to merely return to European football.
The French tactician suggested that if there is a chance of the title in the final sprint, then the capital club will re-assess their objectives at the business end of the season.
Nevertheless, a 5-0 win over Bologna at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday night will have done little to suppress the growing feeling that Garcia has built something special in the Eternal City, and with the advantage over their rivals of no European distractions this season they are completely focused on Serie A.
Goals from Alessandro Florenzi, a double for Gervinho, Mehdi Benatia and Adem Ljajic sealed the win, while De Rossi was eager to maintain a clean sheet as Roma now have the best attack (17 goals scored) and the best defence (1 goal conceded) in the league.
Meanwhile, they are closely followed by Napoli and Juventus who are two points adrift, with both sides picking up wins this weekend.
Despite resting key players for the Champions League clash with Arsenal on Tuesday night, Rafa Benitez saw his side secure a 2-0 win at Genoa, with the result ultimately resulting in the end of the Fabio Liverani era for the Grifone.
However, there was further controversy surrounding Juve’s winner in the Turin derby against Torino, with suspicions of offside ahead of Paul Pogba hitting the winner.
Elsewhere, there was a much needed win for AC Milan as they defeated Sampdoria at San Siro thanks to a Valter Birsa strike. With their injury woes easing, much more will be expected of Massimiliano Allegri over the coming weeks.
In contrast, there was disappointment for both Inter Milan and Lazio, who were held to draws by Cagliari and Sassuolo respectively. The Nerazzurri have also been tipped as title contenders this season, but this minor setback shows how quickly opinion can change, and Roma will be keen to avoid a similar result next week when they take on Walter Mazzarri’s side.
