Iuliano insists Juventus deserved victors over Roma

Former Juventus defender Mark Iuliano insists his old club deserved victory over AS Roma.

Juve won 3-2 on Sunday, thanks to two penalties.

"It was perfect for Juve!" joked former Juve man Iuliano to Tuttomercatoweb.

"Seriously, it was hard to referee a game like yesterday's, but there is little to interpret in the penalties, all could have been whistled very well, it is useless to argue about centimetres.

"It was not a beautiful game, testing for both, the teams were tight, but I think that Juventus' victory was deserved and indisputable.

"They are the strongest team in the League, it just depends on them if they win or not."
