Juventus coach Fabio Capello heaped praise on two of his stars.Juventus coach Fabio Capello heaped praise on Gianluigi Buffon and Alessandro Del Piero following a 2-0 win against Roma.
Juve moved five points clear of Milan, and yet further from the rest of the chasing pack with a fine win, but Capello was delighted that Del Piero scored a third goal in two games and was equally pleased with the performance of goalkeeper Buffon.
"I've seen a good Juve and a good Roma," said Capello.
"It was a good match but we concentrated on playing our game.
"Both teams played to win and this match wasn't easy.
"Buffon is the world's greatest keeper. He knows this because I have told him many times.
"He made an important stop at the end of the first half.
"Del Piero put in another positive performance.
"Playing two games so soon after coming back from injury is difficult for him and he was tired, but he played very well."
