Juventus captain Gianluigi Buffon defended referee Gianluca Rocchi after Sunday's controversial 3-2 win over Serie A rivals Roma .

The official awarded the Bianconeri two penalties during the game in Turin - both of which were converted by Carlos Tevez - while he also failed to notice that Arturo Vidal was standing in an offside position in front of Giallorossi goalkeeper Lukasz Skorupski for Leonardo Bonucci's late winner.

Both Rudi Garcia and Francesco Totti blasted Rocchi after the game but Buffon felt that the criticism was unjustified and was more interested in praising Roma for a fine performance.

"You cannot question the ability of a referee of as much experience as Rocchi," the Italy shot-stopper told Sky Sport Italia.

"I believe that there is no longer much to choose between Roma and ourselves. It was a great game, a match of many incredible swings.

"It's clear that they are stronger than they were last season. This is a new season and they are definitely better. We've seen that tonight.

"Roma have shown a different mentality. They have become a very strong team, thanks to their hard work and their experience.

"It's no surprise that they have closed the gap between us."

Juve's victory sees them move three points clear of the previously undefeated Giallorossi at the summit of the Serie A standings.
