Roma defender Leandro Castán ready for Juventus “final”
Defender Leandro Castán is ready for Sunday’s “final” between Juventus and Roma.
The top two sides in Serie A meet at the Juventus Stadium on Sunday, as Italy's top flight returns from its winter break.
Castán insists he is ready for such a crucial encounter and backs his team-mates to subdue in-form Juventus forward Carlos Tévez.
“This is like a final for us – Roma and Juventus are the two strongest sides in the division, but we can do it if we remain concentrated,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“Carlos Tévez is a top player, but we have shown that we are a team who just never give up.
“What I want from 2014 is the Scudetto at Roma. It would be a perfect year for the squad and myself.”
Rudi Garcia’s side are undefeated so far this season, though a loss would leave them eight points adrift of Juventus.
