Roma won their first friendly under Jose Mourinho, beating a local side 10-0 with a Borja Mayoral hat-trick and Nicolò Zaniolo on target.
The Giallorossi swept Tuscans Montecatini Calcio aside this evening in the Fulvio Bernardini training centre, but fans were not allowed into the event.
Mayoral was the star of the show, bagging a hat-trick, while Zaniolo was also on the scoresheet by converting a penalty after recovering from a second devastating knee injury.
Zaniolo wore the captain’s armband during the second half.
Carles Perez, Gianluca Mancini, Riccardo Calafiori, Nicola Zalewski and Amadou Diawara were also on target, along with an own goal.
The next match, which will be transmitted on television, is against Ternana on July 18.
