Juventus' Giuseppe Marotta aiming for top three finish in Serie A

The Turin side's general director feels that Champions League qualification would be a realistic target for Antonio Conte's men
Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta has told Tuttosport that he has targeted a top three finish after the club's strong start to the Serie A season.

Despite drawing 2-2 with Genoa on Saturday, the Turin giants sits third in the table, two points behind leaders Udinese.

And although many have touted Antonio Conte's men as potential title winners, Moratta feels that Champions League qualification should be the target.

"The word Scudetto is part of the Juventus lexicon, so it is always a goal. The target is to finish in the top three, so that we may fight for something important. In each game we go out to win," Marotta said.

He added, "Conte arrived this year, along with many new players. The boss's work is initiated with different tactics and it takes time to mix a new group."

Juventus hosts Fiorentina on Tuesday, knowing a win would send it back to the top of Serie A.
