Chiellini: Bayern and Inter clashes will need concentration

The Bianconeri defender believes the two crunch matches will be especially tough as they come so close together

Juventus center back Giorgio Chiellini has urged for his teammates to concentrate ahead of "two major challenges" against Inter and Bayern Munich.

The Bianconeri face their fellow Serie A giants on Saturday at the Giuseppe Meazza before playing the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal three days later against the Bavarians.

And Chiellini believes focus is paramount as they enter a defining stage of their season on both fronts.

"Two major challenges await us and they are close together, and our concentration will need to be at its maximum!" he wrote on Twitter.

Juve currently sits nine points clear at the top of Serie A as it chases a second successive title, and reached the last eight in Europe with a 5-0 aggregate win over Celtic.
