“We have to do our duty tonight,” the Swiss international told Sky Sport Italia.
“Roma are doing really well and want us to feel their breath on our necks, which is only right, but we want to respond the way only we know how.”
The gap at the top of the table is five points, but a win would allow Juve to expand it back to eight points.
“We are a fantastic squad with 25 players all at the top level, so whoever goes out there gives their best,” continued Lichtsteiner.
“Udinese will be a great duel, especially as they also play 3-5-2, so it’ll be one-to-one battles all over the field.”
