Philippe Mexes insists AS Roma were the better team after their 1-1 draw with Juventus.

The Giallorossi only managed a 1-1 draw at the Olimpico in Turin with Francesco Totti's penalty cancelling out a Vincenzo Iaquinta opener.

"Roma were superior to Juventus on the night. We conceded a goal that could've been avoided, but then gained confidence and took control," said the defender.

"As for my own form, I have to thank my teammates, as without them I could not play like this.

"Daniele De Rossi is a great player and really helps out the defence, just like Nicolas Burdisso and Aleandro Rosi."
