FILE - In this July 26, 2014 file photo, AS Roma's Francesco Totti kicks for a goal during an exhibition soccer match against Manchester United at Mile High Stadium in Denver, Co. For Italian football fans, merely mentioning the word "scudetto" _ league title _ in association with a favorite club is considered tabu.

Yet recently, the word has begun popping up in animated discussions inside Rome's myriad coffee bars and impassioned sports-talk radio stations. The talk, and not only in the capital, is that Roma can put together a serious challenge for the Serie A title this season. Three years after takeover by US owners, Roma is expected to contend for the Serie A title. (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley, file)
