Andrea Barzagli says Roma gave Juventus ‘headaches for 60 minutes’ yesterday and has warned that the title race is not yet over.
The Bianconeri ran out 3-0 winners over the nine men of the Giallorossi in Sunday evening’s meeting between Serie A’s top two, to hand the Turin side a sizeable eight-point advantage in the title race.
“Is the Scudetto in our pocket? How can I respond? There are still 20 games left,” Barzagli has warned, however, to suggestions the Old Lady have things wrapped up.
“Certainly this was an important game, because it was a direct confrontation. Eight points is a good advantage, but there is still so much until the end of the season.
“It was a tough game, the best moment was at the end when it was over, as for 60 minutes Roma caused us headaches.
“They are a team to be respected, but we have relied upon our strength.”
