After drawing their Portuguese rivals FC Porto earlier this week, Roma surprised us all by adding another high-profile friendly to their summer schedule. The Giallorossi remain rooted in Portugal for the summer but will face a familiar Spanish foe in their sixth friendly of the summer: Sevilla. When these sides last met, way back on August 6, 2020, Roma were unceremoniously dumped from the 2019-2020 Europa League after a 2-0 defeat.
That no so ancient history is still fresh in the minds of many Roma players and fans, so this match should have more juice than your average summer friendly.
