      Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci regrets the missed opportunity of wrapping up the Scudetto this weekend after defeat to Roma

      Leonardo Bonucci has insisted the Bianconeri must heed tonight’s lesson in defeat as they now aim to bounce back next weekend with a win against Crotone that would mathematically seal the Scudetto.

      Mario Lemina’s opener had put Juve on course for the title, but Roma fought back with three goals to claim all three points at the Stadio Olimpico.

      “After an excellent first half, we inexplicably fell away in the second period and conceded too often,” Bonucci lamented. “When you’re close to the finish line, you simply can’t be giving away points like this because you then risk to complicate matters further down the line.”

      “This defeat must serve as a lesson. We have to rediscover that humility and that desire to run the hard yards and to win football matches. The boss was right when he said we weren’t quite at the races in training yesterday.

      “We could have closed the title race once and for all tonight, but now we head into next Sunday’s match knowing we have to use up a lot of energy again in this crucial stage of the season.”
