Posted on 12/11/2010


Seven consecutive positive results and three home victories in a row. This Juventus wants to go on with their favorable double sequence, and this team is the one facing Roma on one of the three big matches of Championship’s 12th day.
The match vs. Roma has so many meanings, besides the one regarding classification. Among these, also the challenge between former Roma’s trainers Del Neri and Ranieri. Juventus trainer is faithfully waiting for the match: «It’s not true we lost a chance in Brescia. Our target is to keep on improving match by match. The one vs. Roma is important; we face a team able to fight till the end for the Scudetto».
The coming weekend will be very interesting. Not only because it will put an end to a full week – considering Wednesday midweek turn -, but most of all because of what’s on the program. Juventus-Roma starts a two- days’ turn which will include Lazio-Napoli and the derby in Milano. Practically, the classification’s first six teams all together. «This will be nice to see – Del Neri says -. The Championship has been really balanced so far and nobody showed being stronger than the others. It’s too soon to speak of Scudetto, but we know there are many teams having victory in their DNA. Each point is useful, just like the one we gained in Brescia».
For tomorrow match, Juventus trainer will recover Amauri and Felipe Melo and try to count on what has been the strong point so far: the group. «It’s a fundamental factor for achieving results. The one I have today is a compact group, believing in what they do. This behavior brings positive results».
Juventus is going to find a Roma on the rise, able to get to the head-to-head match with only one point from the top. After the match vs. the Milanese, another important test. Del Neri concludes: «It will be an important match, like the one in Brescia and like the next ones. We’ll face a team who did very well last year and strengthened by Borriello’s arrival. They have decisive players like Totti and Vucinic, but also interesting young boys like Greco. They’ve got anything they need to fight till the end. Ranieri? He did well everywhere he went and he’s doing the same in Roma thanks to his experience».
