Scudetto Is In Roma's Own Hands Now - Italy Coach Marcello Lippi

Italy coach Marcello Lippi believes Roma's Scudetto destiny is in their own hands.

The Lupi lead Inter by a point in Serie A, and while that may not be enough, Lippi feels they have the quality to keep their heads above water and stay top.

"In relation to the league, I did say a few weeks ago that Inter had the advantage because they had a point more. This week I say that Roma have it," he told the press at Coverciano.

"If you are chasing a point behind the leaders then you can do everything, but it doesn't depend on you. But if you are leading by a point then everything depends on you."

Roma are unbeaten in 23 games in Serie A, and Lippi insists this is key to efforts in relation to winning the title.

"If you always win, then no one will overtake you," he added.
