By Football Italy staff The Viola lost a 4-1 aggregate defeat to Roma on Sunday, the latest in a series of losses for the Serie A champions, who have been hammered on a number of fronts by a resurgent Juventus.
The result means Juventus remain just three points adrift of the top four with just six games remaining.
They will now have to face Fiorentina in their final fixture of the season at the San Siro, where the Giallorossi have already lost the last three times they have taken to the field.
Roma’s goal difference, meanwhile, is the worst in Serie A, with six points separating them from the top three.
It was the Viola’s first defeat at home since February 13, 2007, when they drew 1-1 at home to Torino.
Rome’s previous home defeat came two weeks ago, when Alessio Cerci’s side drew 1 – 1 at home against Parma.
