Chiellini: 'Juve deserved more'

Travelling to Rome on the back of four successive Serie A victories, Juventus were coming to a pivotal moment in their season. A triumph in the Capital against a desperate Lazio would not only put pressure on those above, it would add to the growing notion that the Bianconeri are serious Scudetto contenders. All this after a poor start to the season left Juve languishing in the bottom half by the end of October.

“We have to take it game-by-game. We’ve recovered some places in the last few games. The important thing is to be consistent between now and Christmas.
