thumbnail Hello,

The Nerazzurri coach says that his side will go on to the pitch in tomorrow’s clash with the Italian champions knowing that three points will not be good enough

Inter boss Andrea Stramaccioni is hoping that his side will be able to beat Juventus when they face the Italian champions on Saturday in Serie A.

The Bianconeri have gone 49 league games unbeaten, but the 36-year-old will not be satisfied with anything less than three points from the Turin clash, but was adamant that the result will not decide the title race.

"I won't settle for a draw. In the few games I've been coach, I've never thought about going out on the pitch to do anything but win," he told reporters at a press conference.

"I believe tomorrow's result will have more of an impact in the media than anywhere else. You might get a good result only to then spoil it later on, or get a bad result, which will not decide your season."

Stamaccioni went on to say that his side will have to play close attention to Andrea Pirlo if they are to succeed on Saturday.

"He's the playmaker both for Juventus and the national team; I think it makes sense to pay greater care to him to make it more difficult for him to set the tempo."

When asked about his starting XI for the Juventus Stadium match, which Jose Mourinho used to announce prior to kick-off during his time at San Siro, Stramaccioni stated that he had not settled on his team selection.

"I'm really undecided, here's another example of the big difference between me and Jose."
