It's not every week that Roma has a chance to score nearly 10 goals, but thanks to an extremely sharp and efficient effort, the Giallorossi nearly did that today at the Stadio Dell’Ara. With 16 attempts on goal, 13 of which came in the run of play and seven of which were on target, Roma's attack was hitting on all cylinders in this afternoon's 5-1 victory over Bologna.

While the hosts may have had the first chance of the game, it wasn't long before Roma put their foot on the gas, leaving Bologna in the dust. With three goals in the first 15 minutes and more chances than we could count, for a moment it felt like Roma would hang seven or eight goals on Bologna before the half-hour mark.

The match would settle down a bit, but not before Roma scored five goals for the third time this season.

So, in case you weren’t lucky enough to catch the match in real-time, enjoy Roma's latest goal-scoring binge.
