A.S. Roma was left trailing in the wake of city rivals Lazio's resurgence to fight for domestic and international glory. In coach Zdeněk Zeman's second season at the reign, Roma finished fifth in the table, and just missed out on qualification for the final Champions League spot. Roma reached the quarter finals of the UEFA Cup, but lost to Atlético Madrid.

Zeman employed an attacking 4-3-3 formation. Strikers Marco Delvecchio and Francesco Totti and substitute Paulo Sérgio scored 42 goals between them. As a team, Roma scored the most goals in Serie A, but poor defensive play led to them conceding 49 goals, the most of any of the top six teams.
