Antonio Conte is expecting Roma to push his Juventus team right to the wire in the race for the Scudetto this season.

Rudi Garcia's men disposed of Atalanta in Rome on Saturday to reduce the deficit to just five points in the Serie A standings, with Juve set for a trip to Udinese on Monday.

The Bianconeri have additional fixtures on the horizon having drawn Benfica in the semi-final of the Europa League, but Conte does not believe that his side's European commitments will hinder their domestic aspirations.

"The title race is still open. I expected the head-to-head with Roma to go down to the wire," told Sky Sport Italia.

"It's been a hard season physically and mentally but we're still in the running on two fronts. We're living the moment.

"Juggling two competitions? This is where we wanted to be. It's all good experience for me, the players and the club."

Monday's trip to Udine is scheduled to kick off at 7.45pm.
