I'll be nervous watching Roma-Napoli, admits Conte

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 has revealed he will be 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," said Conte.

"There are still 11 rounds to go, but we are 50 per cent 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% home record in the league - they have won 14 of their 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 face 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."
