Gigi Buffon admits Juventus had “some good luck” in their victory away to Milan, but insists the Scudetto race isn’t over.
The goalkeeper spoke to Sky Sport Italia after a 2-0 win at San Siro sent them 11 points clear, even if Roma have a game in hand.
“There’s a lot of credit to go round for the way the team was able to suffer under pressure, but there was also some good luck too,” said Buffon.
“If you come to San Siro and face Milan, then there is never a favourite, as neither side wants to give in. It’s the first time we’ve won here in the Antonio Conte era.
“It is also very important that we notched up a fourth consecutive clean sheet. My defenders are the best and the forwards are also giving them a big hand.”
When asked if the Scudetto was practically in Juve’s grasp, Buffon backed off.
“These are three very important points, but we’ve got to be very careful. It’s not over yet and Roma are a very strong side who have no other competitions to take part in, which is an important factor.
“At times when the gas is running low in our tanks, we can hopefully make the most of this advantage.”
