Juventus were held to a 1-1 draw in Turin, though Giallorossi youth product and life-long fan Aquilani was voted Man of the Match by Sky Italia television.
"I had a hand in Vincenzo Iaquinta's goal, so going in front was the important thing," said the midfielder.
"We wanted to win tonight, but this is also a good result. If you want to aim high then you've got to win, but Roma are a great side.
"The last few days have been unusual and a little different, as facing Roma is an odd feeling."
