Juve smile as Roma draw at home.

After the bore draw with Fiorentina it looked like that Roma had the best chance to close that gap to one point.
Juve on Friday night faced Fiorentina, the bianconeri rested a couple of players as they had Atletico Madrid on Tuesday, what was originally thought the players left out were actually left out and that what was the difference, but on that note Fiorentina did not manage to take full advantage.
This also shows that Juve are much stronger than Fiorentina even when they play players who are not first choice. Bonucci was the man of the match, always read the game well his challenges were on time and fair he made huge difference in the defense.
The game had two episodes which made the experts talk, one was Chiellini’s challenge in the box which was a penalty, and the second was just before the end of the game a clear handball in the box by a Viola defender, two spot kicks missed by the referee, two wrongs don’t make a right. You’d be forgiven to think that this draw was not great as that has given Roma the biggest chance to close the gap big time as they hosted Sassuolo.
Roma hosted Sassuolo, the guests were favorite to win the game, as Roma played seven home games and won all seven only conceded two goals whiles Sassuolo’s away record is played six won 2 drawn 2, all the odds says Roma easy home win.
It took 15 minutes for Zaza to make his mark a back pass to the keeper which kept the ball to long and Zaza being a striker did what he does best beat the keeper and 1-0 to the guests three minutes later disaster a through ball that split everyone and Zaza does again makes it 2-0, what is happening Roma have conceded the same amount off goals in this game as the other seven, bad news for the hosts. In the second half things seemed to worse for Roma as De Rossi booked for the second time off he went. In the 78th Sassuolo gave away a penalty and the distance was closed to one goal. After that De Francisco made what can only be described as a huge error and I mean huge taking off his three attacking players who were causing the guests a headache replaced them with fresh player whom seemed to be overwhelmed by the pressure and thus Roma took full advantage and squared the game in the 93rd minute.
The other game was Torino hosted Palermo and this game also ended all square by the same result 2-2.

Juve now have to prepare for Tuesday night as they host Atletico Madrid, a draw will suffice but playing for a draw is bad news as it was shown last season when the bianconeri came unstuck against Galatasaray who scored the goal which ended Juve’s champion’s league campaign, hopefully this time round Juve will out and score at least twice as to secure qualification into the knockout stage.
