Roma's 2015-2016 Fixture List Released

New, comments

The path towards unseating Juventus or simply hanging onto second place has been released. Roma will kick off the new season on the road vs Verona and end it in early May on the road against Milan.

In an effort to give Antonio Conte's Azzurri side more time to gel prior to Euro 2016, Serie A has moved their schedule up a few weeks, meaning opening day away to Hellas Verona is less than a month away. Yikes. Despite the early start, Roma's opening month-and-a-half doesn't look too bad, apart from their week two encounter with four-time reigning champion Juventus. (H=Home matches, A=Away matches)

While you can never tell which clubs will give Roma trouble until we're in the thick of the fixture list, you have to say, the traditional heavyweights are pretty well spaced out this season, though facing Fiorentina, Udinese, Inter and Lazio consecutively will be daunting, particularly in the spring.

27 days and counting....
