Rome: AS Roma coach Rudi Garcia admitted he is hoping for a draw when Serie A leaders Milan host Juventus later Saturday.

All three teams have taken full points from their opening two games, meaning a draw coupled with a win for Roma when they host Cagliari on Sunday would send Garcia`s side clear at the top.

"The most important thing for us is to win tomorrow but of course, when two big sides are facing off you always hope for a draw," Garcia told reporters.

Cagliari are now under the helm of Garcia`s predecessor at Roma, Zdenek Zeman, and although the Sardinians have won one and drawn the other of their opening two games the Frenchman said he won`t be taking the Sardinians lightly.

"We`ve studied Cagliari, as we do with all of our opponents. They`re strong up front, but we have to concentrate on our own game.

"We need to approach Cagliari in the same way we approached the Champions League in midweek."

Roma, last season`s runners-up, trounced CSKA Moscow 5-1 in their opening games in Group E of the Champions League.
