Asa Totti for AS Roma and Juventus
Roma legend Francesco Totti expressed his hope that AS Roma can win the Scudetto in the 2017-18 season. However, talking about the Champions League, the former Italian national team players are hoping Juventus can win the championship trophy.
Hope was expressed Totti while attending the Gazzetta Awards, where he received Lifetime Achievement in the event. Speaking with media crew, Totti revealed that AS Roma could repeat the achievements that last won in the 2000-2001 season.
However, when asked about the possibility of AS Roma in the Champions League, Totti tried to be realistic. Even for the match 16 large counter Shakhtar Donetsk, Totti said both teams have a fairly balanced quality.
“By facing Shakhtar, the game will be the last 16 of the Champions League 50-50,” said Francesco Totti as reported by Football Italia.
“AS Roma for the Scudetto or Juventus for the Champions League? The Scudetto is not an easy thing for AS Roma, so is the Champions League for Juventus, but I hope both of them could be achieved this season,” Totti said.
Grabbing Scudetto this season is not impossible for AS Roma. Giallorossi up to 15 Serie A matches run successfully occupy the top four in the standings. AS Roma is only five points adrift of Inter Milan who are at the top of the standings.
While in the Champions League, AS Roma managed to step into the round of 16 after winning Group C. Giallorossi escaped accompanied by Chelsea and get rid of Atletico Madrid to the Europa League. In the last 15, Roma will face Shakhtar Donetsk.
In addition to these two competitions, AS Roma is also still involved in the Coppa Italia. Eusebio’s team at Francesco has now reached the last 16 and will face Torino.
