Juventus captain Alessandro del Piero feels they threw away the three points in their draw with AS Roma.

Juve took the lead through Vincenzo Iaquinta but were pegged back after Francesco Totti put away a controversial penalty.

Del Piero said: “The game against Roma was one of great intensity. It was tough and very hard-fought.

“All told we had the best chances, but the quality of our opponents' performances must be recognised.

“It was a balanced game just like the League with only a few points separating many different teams: anything is possible.

“Saturday's draw came at the end of a very long period of games, one after the other, without a break.

“Now we can stop for a day and above all work with the prospect of playing just one game a week for the next 15 days.

“The away game against Genoa at Marassi will not be easy as they are coming off two wins in a row.”
