Alessandro Del Piero concedes Juventus “must scale down the objectives for this season. The situation is serious.”

The captain scored a wonderful volley, but it was not enough to prevent last night’s 2-1 home defeat to Roma.

That result left them five points adrift of third place and potentially out of the Europa League spots after this weekend.

“We must scale down the objectives for this season. The situation is serious,” he told Juventus Channel.

“Within this game there were some good moments, but the incidents and results inevitably affect our confidence.

“It is very tough for us. Only together can we get ourselves out of this situation.”

Even when asked about his marvellous strike, Del Piero’s mood could not be lifted.

“I can’t enjoy it one little bit. In the first half we did well, as Roma came here to hit us on the break.

“Then after the hour mark we dropped the tempo and lost the match.”
