Juventus severely underwhelmed as they slipped to a 2-0 defeat against Champions League-chasing Roma on Sunday evening.

The visitors started brightly and set the tone for the game by forcing Roma keeper Antonio Mirante into a string of sensational saves during the opening 25 minutes. I Bianconeri continued to control possession for the remainder of the first half, but they were unable to find a breakthrough and the tie remained goalless at the interval.

Neither side was able to stamp their authority on the second half and opportunities in front of goal proved to be rare. However, with just ten minutes left on the clock Roma were able to find a breakthrough through Alessandro Florenzi.

The right-back took advantage of some slack defending and found himself through on goal before delicately chipping the ball over the onrushing Wojciech Szczesny.

Edin Dzeko then confirmed the win for Roma with the final kick of the game as he finished off a rapid counter attack with a confident finish from close range.
