Radja: Defeat difficult to accept

Radja Nainggolan was once again left to rue some misfortune at the Allianz Stadium, as Roma suffered a 1-0 defeat against Juventus on Saturday.

Medhi Benatia scored the only goal of the game to give the Bianconeri the three points, despite a flurry of late chances for the Giallorossi - who saw Alessandro Florenzi hit the bar and Patrik Schick thwarted with a great late opening.

Afterwards, Nainggolan acknowledged that the Giallorossi were unable to make the most of their openings.

"Juve are a great side. We wanted to press them high up the pitch, but when you do that it is always dangerous," he said.

"Coming here, and then managing to create a few good chances without scoring, you do start to wonder if you'll be able to get a draw."

What was Schick's mood like in the dressing room after his late chance?

"He was a bit down but I think that's normal. He has great talent, and he is making himself available to the side. To have a chance like that, where maybe in the past he would have scored easily, I know it can be difficult. But we hope that these moments will help us score in future."

Can you still be in the running for the Scudetto?

"To talk about the title has always been a mistake. This year I have always said we will try to take things game by game. We are where we are, with a game in hand, so to lose here against Juventus is not a huge blow - there is still the return game.

"We can recover, avoiding slip-ups so we can close the gap. We are on the right path, it's not easy but we need to work hard to finish as high up as we can."
