Antonio Conte has made it clear that the upcoming few weeks are crucial for Juventus in their hunt for the Scudetto and Champions League.

The Turin giants take on arch-rivals Inter in Serie A on Saturday, before travelling to Germany for the first leg of their quarter-final tie against Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

“It’s an important moment of the season for us, with six games in 21 days. We’ll be playing for the Scudetto and a place in the Champions League semi-finals,” the Juventus coach said.

“Experience tells me that getting ahead of ourselves could cause us to slip up. We need to take one game at a time. The most important encounter is the one we’re facing next.

“I’ll choose my strongest side on Saturday, we’re focused solely on Inter. It will be an open and entertaining encounter, a draw won’t suit either side. Inter can beat anyone in a one-off game, we must be extremely focused and alert.”

Juventus currently sit nine points clear on top of the Serie A table – and Conte is eager to put even more space on their rivals.

“We want to confirm ourselves in the championship and we can’t fail in specific games, because we are playing against a great side and tradition,” he said.

“Inter can beat anyone in a game.

“We have to follow our objectives which are to win the Scudetto again and continue our Champions League dream.”
