On Monday March 3rd the second in the ranks Roma will host the leader Juventus, for a game that can possibly re-open the run towards winning the scudetto. It could be the last chance for Roma to stop the, until this moment, unstoppable Juventus.
Roma, according to the records of the last few games, “went to sleep” for a while, but declares to be ready to come back and beat the bianconeri. The hopes to conquer the scudetto are thus still high, and winning would also mean obtaining three points at the Olympic stadium, something that doesn’t happen since November 30th.
The president James Pallotta says in front of the cameras of Roma Radio that his team is only looking for a win, not for revenge. He knows the mistakes made during the previous Juventus-Roma match were many, but those can happen. He thinks Roma did well in Torino and demonstrated that the two teams are on the same level. He also points out that the records show many ties, but not even one loss, and notes that Roma is holding the second place. Some of the fans criticized the team, as legit it is to do so, but the majority are happy with Pallotta’s management. Worth noting is also the fact that Roma suffered many injuries throughout the season that penalized its performance.
On the other hand, Juventus is in a state of emergency in the midfield, missing Vidal and Pirlo and with Pogba trying hard to come back in order to fill the gap. It is possible that Sturaro will start the game. Tevez and Morata are Juventus’ certainties at this moment, although they could feel tired due to the Champions League’s games, while Bonucci and Marchisio are the ones in the best shape.
As it could reopen the game or somehow settle down the hearts of Roma and its fans, this 25th day of campionato is decisive, thus not to be missed.
