Marco Landucci felt every emotion during Juventus’ 4-3 comeback win over Roma this evening.

The Bianconeri were on the back foot for the majority of their match against the Giallorossi tonight at the Stadio Olimpico, being 3-1 down after an hour. Three goals in seven minutes turned the game of it’s head and the Turin side held on to secure a vital three points.

Speaking in an interview with DAZN after the match, Landucci reacted to the thrilling win over Roma.

“When you win everything is much more amazing. Locatelli’s goal gave us back our enthusiasm and we managed to turn it around.

“Happy with De Sciglio’s goal, we showed character. Approaches are of little use, you have to show it on the pitch. Today I lost 5-6 years of my life, if it always ends like this it’s amusing.”

The Juventus assistant coach spoke about the team’s growth in the match and their issues conceding.

“We started with fear, we wanted to play an offensive game but we conceded goals from set pieces. We changed something in the second half because we were struggling to score.

“Too bad about the second goal, we threw the ball away, it happens often, it’s not a coincidence. Then we did well to believe in it, the second goal helped us and gave us confidence.”

He touched on who choose the substitutes in the match.

“A secret, we can’t say! We were all staff working together.”

Landucci was relieved that Wojciech Szczesny saved the penalty in the latter stages of the game.

“I hoped Tek would save it like he did in the first leg.”

He gave his thoughts on Spanish forward Alvaro Morata.

“A strong player, he has always shown affection for this team.”

The Juve assistant coach was also satisfied with Paulo Dybala’s performance.

“A good game, a good goal, he showed his quality.”

Finally, Landucci discussed the injury to star forward Federico Chiesa.

“The only negative note, a sprained knee, he will be assessed tomorrow.”

  1. This game gives a glimpse of the future when Chiellini and Bonucci retire (or are too told). And De Ligt is the only good defender left, and looks like he wants to leave at the end of the season. Better pray the two Italians return soon.
    In attack, well I guess you could say it is a postive sign to get Chiesa and Dybala back, but the MF didnt control much of the game

  2. @Chris Obviously the Chiesa injury didn’t help but a lot of the game was painful to watch. In particular De Sciglio and McKennie down the left side.
