Roma coach Jose Mourinho is optimistic about his club's prospects of a top-four finish in Serie A but acknowledged his team are unpredictable after their victory over Juventus.

Gianluca Mancini's second-half strike was the difference as the Giallorossi secured a 1-0 win over the Bianconeri at the StadioOlimpico on Sunday.

The result moved Roma into the top four, edging out Milan with a superior goal difference, and puts them in the mix for Champions League qualification.

Speaking after the game, Mourinho told reporters: "The problem is that you never know how Roma will play. We have to know our limits. At that point, we can play to win and bring home the result. In isolated matches, we can do well against everyone. But any championship is a marathon. We must always give everything to bring home the result. We won because the players gave 100 per cent. They won the match, not my tactical organisation. Juventus are very compact, and it was important we kept the ball."
