Rome:

Juventus and Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon refused to get carried away after his side's top-of-the-table 1-0 victory over Lazio.


Juve are top by a point and could move four points clear if they beat Napoli in their game in hand on Tuesday.

But Buffon does not believe his side should get too excited just yet.

"I don't have 'ham on my eyes' (I'm not kidding myself), we won but things went our way," said Buffon.

"There's no need to take anything away from Lazio, they had their chances to draw.

"We're in good form and the victories are helping increase our self-belief.

"We're happy about this result but we're not being blind, things went our way.

"We're keeping our feet on the ground because the time will come when things don't go so well.

"We've just had two unimpressive seasons and none of us can afford to be so presumptuous as to start talking about the title.

"With respect to the past we've improved. (coach Antonio) Conte speaks our language and that's what we needed."

Centre-back Leonardo Bonucci agreed that they hadn't necessarily deserved to win the game, not least because Lazio's Hernanes hit the post in the second half after Simone Pepe's goal in the first period.

"We did well but we were also lucky. But this was good for our confidence," he said.
