Conte: Dropping points could be lethal for Juve

The successful coach has insisted that the Old Lady must remain focused, and has set his sights on victory against Catania on Sunday

Antonio Conte has stressed that Juventus cannot afford to drop any points in the race for the Serie A title with Napoli and AC Milan ready to take advantage of any slip-ups.

The Bianconeri currently hold a comfortable six-point lead over second-placed Napoli, but the former Siena boss has made it clear that they cannot afford to lose focus ahead of Sunday's match versus Catania.

"All the games we play from now until the end of the season will represent finals as far as we’re concerned, dropping points could be lethal," he said at a press conference.

"Catania are doing extremely well this year. It’s an extremely tough game that needs to be faced with the right attitude, attention and determination.

"We’ll also need our supporters to urge us on. I hope to see a full house at Juventus Stadium to celebrate our qualification to the [Champions League] quarter-finals and, hopefully, witness a great performance and victory."

Sunday's match in Turin is scheduled to kick off at 15:00CET.
