Juventus' draw with Roma not a slip-up, says Chiellini

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini insisted the Old Lady's 1-1 draw against Roma on Monday was not a slip-up for them, as "everybody struggles in Rome."

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini insisted the Old Lady's 1-1 draw against Roma on Monday was not a slip-up for them, as "everybody struggles in Rome."

The Bianconeri went behind in the first few minutes when Arturo Vidal's howler allowed Daniele De Rossi to score, then equalized through Chiellini before Gigi Buffon saved a Roma penalty.

"Was this a wasted opportunity? Clearly we had come here to win and tried to do that, but everyone struggles in Rome. It's a long way from saying this is a slip-up," Chiellini was quoted by football-italia.net as saying.

"Considering how things were going, this is an important point.

"We had the strength to fight back and try to win right to the end. We allowed Roma more than we should've, but overall it was a positive performance that gives strength to the side and puts us back on top of the table," he said.
