ROME - Serie A leaders Juventus set aside celebrations for a brilliant showing in the Champions League as they gear up for a classic match at troubled Roma.

The Bianconeri on Tuesday crushed Celtic Glasgow 3-0 in a first-leg away tie that virtually guaranteed them a place in the quarterfinals, allowing them to focus on the five-point lead they have on Napoli in the Italian league.

“The game (at Roma) on Saturday will be fun,” Alessandro Matri told the Juventus website. “We wish ourselves to get three points because the league in this moment is the most important thing. I hope to win.”

Matri was on target in Glasgow for a third straight outing as he played his 300th professional game. His good form is likely to worry Roma’s shaky defence, the league’s second worse with 45 goals conceded in 24 games.
