Miralem Pjanic: Roma not afraid of Juventus

The Bosnian has the utmost respect for the Scudetto holders but says Rudi Garcia's unbeaten side is a match for any side in Italy.

Miralem Pjanic says Roma is not the least bit afraid of Juventus ahead of Sunday's Serie A showdown in Turin.

The Bianconeri have won the Scudetto for the last two seasons and are currently five points clear of the Giallorossi at the top of the table.

However, Pjanic insists that unbeaten Roma will travel to Juventus Stadium in hope rather than fear.

"Juventus are a very strong team," the Bosnian told Gazetta dello Sport. "But we are not afraid of them. We know we are on a par with any opponent in the league, but have to be on top of our game to beat Juve.

"It's going to be a great game for sure. But we're determined to bring home some valuable points."

The match is scheduled to kick off at 2:45 p.m. Eastern.
