Duel between first and second in the Serie A. Juventus visited Rome's field aiming to gain advantage at the head of the classification. Rome had a perfect chance to cut distances to the leader.

Thus, Allegri's team had no problem giving possession ball to the locals. The strategy was to be hard in defense and take advantage of the counterattacks. Rome had possession, but they did not push enough to break the game dynamics.

In this situation, Juventus scored the first goal in the minute 64 thanks to a free-kick (which also meant Vasilis Torosidis' sending-off) by Carlos Tevez:

15 minutes later, Rome could tie the match thanks to another free-kick and the final header by Keita.

With this result, Juventus are keeping 9-point advantage with 13 games left to be played.
