Szczesny: 'Big Juve-Roma gap'

Wojciech Szczesny felt Roma “did not deserve defeat, but there’s a big gap between us and a great side like Juventus.”

The goalkeeper was busier than his Bianconeri counterpart and could not keep out the early Gonzalo Higuain solo effort.

“We played well, especially after the Juve goal,” Szczesny told Mediaset Premium after a 1-0 loss in Turin.

“We did not deserve defeat, but still didn’t play at our best.”

Roma are now seven points adrift of the Serie A leaders, so do they still believe in the Scudetto?

“There’s a bit gap between us and a great side like Juventus. It all becomes more complicated. We’ve got to focus on the next game with Chievo and try to slowly step by step close this gap.”
