“Juventus-Roma is more than just a Scudetto battle, as with Fiorentina they also play the best football in Italy,” tactical legend Sacchi told Tuttosport.

“Juventus and Roma are the most complete squads. Both Antonio Conte and Rudi Garcia seek total football and have the objective to be protagonists on the pitch. They don’t just sit back and try to take advantage of opposition errors, nor is their priority destruction. They trust their own football.

“When you see one of their teams, it’s impossible not to realise it, as the imprint is evident. Conte is a great Coach and has already proved that abundantly, while Garcia has done very well straight away in one of the world’s toughest Leagues.
