Francesco Totti's missile clocked at 113km/h was enough to sink Serie A leaders Juventus 1-0 in a nail-biting clash at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday.

The decisive goal came before the hour mark and in sensational fashion.

Miralem Pjanić tried his luck with a free kick but it was blocked by the Juventus defense and the ball fell to Totti 25 yards from goal.

The Roma talisman did not think twice as he immediately hit an unstoppable right-foot rocket into the top left corner of Gianluigi Buffon's goal.

The goal was worthy of winning any match, and it left Buffon with no chance as it was travelling at 113km/h.

"Totti often does things like that. I've been lucky enough to witness more than a hundred of his goals," said Roma coach Aurelio Andreazzoli.
