Juventus not thinking about six-point advantage - Peluso

The January signing has urged his team-mates to remain focused winning each match as they prepare to take on Scudetto rivals Napoli on Friday

Juventus defender Federico Peluso has said that the team are not thinking about their six-point lead at the top of Serie A.

Antonio Conte’s side look ever-more likely to retain their Scudetto title, but the former Atalanta man is remaining calm over the situation ahead of their top-of-the-table clash with Napoli on Friday.

"We can’t be thinking about the six point advantage, we’re just concentrating on ourselves," Peluso told the club’s official website.

"We know what our aims are and what we want to achieve game after the game. Friday’s match is obviously important and so we hope to come out on top."

The 29-year-old also urged his team-mates to remain focused in their Champions League tie at home to Celtic on March 12.

“The Scots were very good from dead ball situations so we have to be aware of that threat," he added.

“In the first leg, Celtic showed they are a great team who can cause problems for us. Overall we need to stay very focused for the entire match.”
