thumbnail Hello,

The towering attacker has hailed the titleholders' fine run of form and says they will be gunning for revenge against Fiorentina on Sunday

Fernando Llorente has voiced his delight with Juventus' "sensational" form this season, but warned his team-mates they cannot afford to lose focus as the Serie A title race is not over yet.

The reigning champions currently hold an 11-point lead over second-placed Roma - who have a game in hand - but the Spanish striker has stressed Juve must keep up their current form until the end of the season in order to win the Scudetto again.

"The distance we’ve established over the Giallorossi has even surprised me a little. Our campaign has been sensational so far but it’s not easy to pick up this many points," Llorente told Sky Sport Italia.

"What matters now is continuing this form right until the very end.

"The important thing is to not let our focus slip for even a moment, because Roma would be ready to pounce at any opportunity."

Llorente then went on to discuss this weekend's match against Fiorentina, who beat Juventus 4-2 earlier this season, and made it clear that the Bianconeri are desperate to get their revenge.

"We want revenge. Fiorentina are the only side that have managed to beat us in the league and we want to demonstrate that what happened in Tuscany was just an error.

"We had played a great first half and we could even have scored again right after the break. Then there were those twenty minutes in which Fiorentina came to life and we made some mistakes. I don’t really know how to explain what happened."

Juventus also meet Fiorentina in the Europa League round of 16.
