Daniele De Rossi remains optimistic about Roma's Serie A chances as he hopes leaders Juventus will slip up at some point to blow the title race wide open.

"I don't know if Juventus will start to drop points now and whether it will be a spectacular end to the season, but we just need to win and hope they and [third-placed] Napoli drop points," De Rossi told Rai Sport.
"You can tell it's a good season from lots of little things: in the summer with those who arrived; winning the derby in week four; the crucial victory in Udinese; the run of results after our defeat [to Juventus] in Turin.
"It is already impressive that we are so close to a team that was constructed to destroy all competition in the Serie A."
The Italy international then went on to praise Roma's performance in this weekend's slim win over Bologna.
