Antonio Conte believes that Roma will be a tough challenge for Juventus, despite their poor league standing.

Juventus coach Antonio Conte has predicted a tough challenge when his Serie A leaders travel to the capital to take on Roma on Saturday.

He has insisted that his side will not be complacent despite their five-point lead at the top and a potential Champions League quarter-final.

"The Roma game will be very difficult," Gazzetta dello Sport quotes Conte as saying. "We will not become complacent. Roma should be fighting at the top of the table, they are technically excellent.

"We want to continue the growth we started 18 months ago. We have made ​​extraordinary steps, from seventh place in the league [at one point last season] to the Champions League."

Roma have struggled this season and find themselves in ninth place in Serie A.
