AS Roma was the result of a merger of three clubs - Alba, Fortitudo and Roman and the club won it's first Scudetto in 1942. The club's only relegation came in 1951 but they bounced straight back and won the 1961 UEFA Cup. Roma have won the Coppa Italia eight times - twice in the 1980s when they also won the Serie A title in 1983 and lost in the final of the European Cup to Liverpool on penalties the following year. Fabio Capello won Roma's third title with a dominant 2000-01 season. Since then, Roma have won the Coppa Italia once more and have emerged as title challengers.
