‘The future of the season is uncertain’ as Roma move into third place
The Giallorossi, who will be without midfielder Dani Alves for a month, will be under pressure to make an impact as they face off against a Juventus side who are currently second in Serie A.
While the Rossoneri have lost two of their last four away games, they are currently three points clear at the top of Serie A, with a win against Napoli on Sunday putting them in front.
“We’ll have to be more aggressive in the second half, but that’s the nature of the beast.
We need to stay focused on ourselves and try to play with a little bit of calmness and composure,” said Roma’s coach.”
This is the first time we’ve faced this team without the best player in the team and with a goal difference of just two points.
We’ll try to do the same against Napoliseo, but we have to win and do it against the best team in the world.”
While the home side have the advantage, Juve are a different story.
The Bianconeri are just four points clear of the drop zone, while the visitors have conceded eight goals in their last three matches.
“Our opponents are one of the best in the league, and we need to play better and try and be better in defence, but our goalkeeper will also be a major problem,” added the coach.
“If we don’t change our style, we won’t be able to compete.”
