Jose Mourinho has a chance to earn redemption in a country where he has a strong reputation, having not only landed a Scudetto with Internazionale but also secured a Champions League title. This happened over a decade ago, although he will take charge of Roma with the express intention of bringing back the good times.

Mourinho has and always will be a pragmatic manager, with the Wolves having finished in seventh position last season and Rui Patricio has arrived at the club in the summer to join his compatriot manager. Bryan Cristante was part of the Euro 2020-winning squad with Italy, while the same can be said of Leonardo Spinazzola who is currently recovering from injury.

We think that Roma can enjoy a winning start to their campaign at a noisy Stadio Olimpico, with Fiorentina having finished thirteenth in the table and just a handful of points above the relegation zone, with La Viola potentially looking over their shoulder this season.

Vincenzo Italiano’s team won on just three away occasions last season and lost nine times, with this match potentially being one-sided as Mourinho seeks redemption among an adoring crowd.
