Francesco Totti is confident Roma will show their true capabilities against Internazionale in the Italian Super Cup final on Sunday.
Roma finished last season 22 points behind Serie A champions Inter, but Totti is optimistic his side will upset the odds in the forthcoming Cup final.
Totti believes that Roma, who have recorded only one win in their five pre-season fixtures, will give a statement of intent at the San Siro.
"I'm not worried by the way pre-season has gone," Totti told the Italian media.
"These are friendlies that are useful for finding the right fitness in time for when the real matches start.
"Now it will be a serious engagement. We will start from Sunday and we would like to come back home with the Italian Super Cup.
"I'm confident that in the San Siro it will be possible to see the real Roma."
