Match ends, Juventus 1, Roma 0.
Paulo Dybala's late goal earned Juventus an 11th successive Serie A win as their 1-0 victory over Roma continued their remarkable title push.
Top scorer Dybala converted a Paul Pogba pass with an angled finish 13 minutes from time as Juventus stayed two points behind leaders Napoli.
Roma's own title hopes have faded with the former leaders now having won just one of their last nine league games.
In a game of few chances, Dybala's 14th goal of the season proved decisive.
Roma were unbeaten in eight games but never looked like ending their run of draws as Juventus keeper Gianluigi Buffon was never tested.
Roma's on-loan Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny made a fine block to keep out a fierce drive from wing-back Patrice Evra at the other end.
And Juve's growing pressure finally paid off as Dybala struck to keep the champions' challenge for a fifth successive title on track.
