The Roma forward believes the Italian defenses are more difficult than any other in the world and this is why the Juventus footballer cannot score

For Roma’s forward Stephan El Shaarawy, the Italian Lega Serie A defenses are the most difficult in the world.

And according to the player, this is why Cristiano Ronaldo has not been able to score in two matches played in this season.

The €110 million footballer has yet to be able to find the net, but his Juventus side is perfect so far in the tournament.

“Juventus is stronger than last year, it will be difficult to keep up the pace,” El Shaarawy told Calcio Mercato.

“They have important alternatives. We have to do our best in the championship without thinking too much about them. We think about winning, then we will see.”

“The Italian defenses are more difficult to overcome than in other tournaments,” he explained.

“He was also unlucky, we saw his talent in the two matches, he could have scored a goal.”
