It was a different atmosphere at the Stadio Olimpico in Turin.
There was a little less tension than usual, the crowd was much quieter and there was a newness to the atmosphere.
It was an incredible feeling, but also one of the most difficult.
Juventus are looking to extend their winning streak to four matches with the victory over Roma.
They are still three points behind Roma in the race for a first place finish in Serie A. They need only a draw to extend the winning streak, but they are not expecting to concede much.
They were well prepared and prepared for the match and will be pleased with how they performed.
They have been playing well in the second half of the season and are looking like they have finally settled in.
The only problem is that Roma are not playing well at all.
They had two late goals and two late saves.
They created a lot of chances and should have scored a few more, but it was a tough day for the Giallors.
It wasn’t as bad as last season, but not by much.
It is not good to see a team lose a game like this.
Roma’s goal started with a corner kick, but a good run by the visitors saw them break in behind the defence and score.
With the ball at the back of the net, Francesco Totti was unmarked in the area and fired home from a tight angle.
The goal is not going to be easy to save.
The home side did not score until half-time and they were level at 2-2.
At this stage, the Gialls are not really going to score again, but this is a game that is going to decide the race to the top.
They will try to win it at home.
Giovanni Trapattoni’s side have not been too far away from a goal since the first leg, but the result was a disappointment.
Trapattoni will have a lot to look forward to after the match.
They face Roma at the same venue on Sunday evening.
The game started with Juventus being in front at 1-1.
They made some good chances and took the lead on 20 minutes.
Totti had a shot from outside the box, but he blocked it out and it bounced back to Raffael and Giorgio Chiellini.
The Italian striker then drove a shot over the crossbar, but Giorgi Chielli put it away with a diving save.
They went ahead after 58 minutes.
Juventus were able to get back in the game on 65 minutes when Andrea Pirlo converted a corner.
He then made a superb save from a Rodrigo Palacio shot that bounced off the cross bar.
Chiellinini put Roma ahead again after 55 minutes, scoring from a corner on the edge of the area.
The Italians had chances in the closing stages of the match, but neither of them could get the target.
Sebastian Giovinco scored a late equaliser for the home side after 57 minutes.
He was unmarked at the top of the box and fired a shot that was blocked.
Icardi had a chance to score himself when he was caught in possession in the box by a Roma defender and he was able to slot a low shot into the bottom corner.
Domenico Berardi’s men went ahead again on 72 minutes when Chiella converted a penalty after a corner from a Totti corner.
A penalty saved by the keeper and Chiello saved the penalty himself.
There was another chance for Roma on 73 minutes when Giovinci did well to turn on the run of Chielewski.
The goalkeeper was unable to clear the ball and Giovincino was in space to head it in.
Giallorazzi will be hoping for more from the players.
Their best chance of the night came on 82 minutes when Totti converted a free kick.
He beat a defender and went in with the ball, only for the shot to be deflected wide.
It was a very poor display from the home team.
It didn’t matter how good Juventus were defensively, the goalkeeping couldn’t keep them in the match at all, and Roma should have had the winner.
After the game, the two sides played out a friendly, but no final result will be announced.
