Claudio Marchisio has admitted that Juventus will derive no joy out of going through the entire Serie A season undefeated if it does not win the Serie A.
With just six games to go, the Bianconeri are on the verge of becoming just the third Italian side to finish a league campaign unbeaten, after Perugia in 1978-79 and AC Milan in 1991-92.
However, Marchisio admits that the only thing that matters as far as Antonio Conte's men are concerned is preserving the one-point lead over the current Rossoneri lineup.
"It’s an even tussle with Milan," the midfielder mused during an interview with Sky Sport Italia "We’re unbeaten and this makes us proud, but maintaining that run is only nice if we have something to show for it at the end.”
Marchisio is also aware that Juve's unblemished record could also be ruined by Champions League-chasing Roma this weekend.
“Roma are an excellent team and they’re in a good run of form," the Italy international pointed out. "They have their ups and downs, but possess great champions and we’ll face them with total respect."
The Old Lady's crunch clash with the Giallorossi kicks off on Sunday.
