Conte aiming to clinch points record
Juventus manager Antonio Conte is eager for his side to maintain consistency in order to secure the all-time Serie A points record.
Conte’s men wrapped up their second consecutive league title with a 1-0 win over Palermo last weekend, and following their triumph at Atalanta on Wednesday, they are now on the cusp of bettering the mark of 91 points set during the Turin outfit’s 2005 title-winning campaign.
Fabio Capello’s side were eventually stripped of their crown after being convicted of wrongdoing in the Calciopoli match-fixing scandal.
However Conte, whose team face Cagliari on Saturday, is still eager for his troops to keep pushing and set the standard in what has been an excellent season for the UEFA Champions League quarter-finalists.
He said: “All we are interested in is continuity. The way to get that is with the right mentality and by finishing the season in the best possible way.
“If we then get this record, then it would be a further satisfaction. Of course we are just two wins away from smashing an important record and this gives us even more motivation.
“But we always go out to win games and that is what we will do tomorrow.”
Juventus will break the points record if they take maximum points against Cagliari and at Sampdoria in the final game of the season.
