AS Roma matchwinner Francesco Totti was thrilled with victory over Juventus. Totti scored the decisive goal with a screamer clocked at 113km/h.

"I hoped for this, as we don't deserve our current position. The team always tries to give its all for ourselves and the fans. Unfortunately lately we haven't achieved that.

"Only with great character could we beat a team like Juventus. It was normal that at the start we were timid, as we are coming off a very difficult time and Juve are among the best teams in Europe.

"We held out in the first half, then stepped up and were able to get the victory."
