Roma lost two points against Napoli on Sunday in the Italian Lega Serie A but for the Brazilian defender his team showed some good things

Stephan El Shaarawy scored in the 14th minute on Sunday to give Roma an advantage in the Italian Lega Serie A.

But Dries Mertens tied things in the last minute of play to level things 1-1.

And defender Juan Jesus talked about the match to Football Italia.

“Did Roma suffer too much? In the second half, yes, but in the first half we showed character and played very well,” he said.

“We had to do the same in the second half. Did Napoli run more? I’m not a fitness expert, but everyone has the same jobs.”

“The important thing is to do what we have to do, which is our work. I don’t think it’s an issue of preparation. We ran well,” he added.

“De Rossi is a different player to Cristante, but it’s up to the Coach to choose a formation and those who came in did well.”

“Draw needed to start over? We can’t be happy with it. Napoli played well and also did so in Paris. We must always do better,” he commented.

“We suffered and Napoli had all the ball, but we defended well and Napoli didn’t make any clear-cut chances. We troubled them in the first half.”
