Preview: Livorno vs. Roma

Sports Mole previews the Serie A opener between Livorno and Roma.

Livorno host Roma at the Armando Picchi on Sunday evening in their first match since returning to Serie A.

Davide Nicola's side were promoted last season, but they face a tough test if they are to begin the new season without a defeat.

Roma boss Rudi Garcia has made several new signings during the summer, including Kevin Strootman, Gervinho and Maicon.

The Stadio Olimpico outfit missed out on a place in the Europe League this season, so they will be able to focus all their efforts on regaining a place in the Champions League.
