thumbnail Hello,

The Bianconeri boss says he will watch the game but is well aware of just how important the outcome of the contest could be in his side's bid to retain their Serie A title

Juventus boss Antonio Conte might be a bit nervous when he sits down to watch the clash between Roma and Napoli.

The Bianconeri ran out 1-0 winners over Fiorentina on Sunday thanks to a Kwadwo Asamoah goal to extend their lead at the top of Serie A to 14 points.

“Will I watch the game? I can’t eat when I’m nervous! We will watch it in a relaxed and satisfied manner, because we have done our job," Conte said. "There are still 11 rounds to go, but we are 50 percent champions of Italy. We’re going at an extraordinary pace, but they’re not letting up behind us either."

Sunday's victory maintained Juve's 100 percent home record in the league - the club has won 14 of its last 14 games at Juventus Stadium - and Conte admitted he is impressed with the relentless nature of his players.

He added: “We did well to win the first Scudetto unbeaten, while last season only Inter and Sampdoria got the better of us. This term we are pretty winning too."

The Old Lady faces Fiorentina a further two times over the next few weeks as the two sides meet in the last 16 of the Europa League, and Conte is confident ahead of their European tie.

"It won’t be difficult to prepare for that game because we have reference points and know them well. It will be a battle," he said.
