Leonardo believes that Monday's clash between Milan and Napoli will not settle the championship...
The Nerazzurri travel to Genoa to face Sampdoria on Sunday and speaking at the pre-match press conference on Saturday, Leonardo said, "The next few games, the next three or four, will be very important as they'll give us a better idea of which teams are really in the race for the Scudetto, although this year I think things will go on as they are until the end. It will go down to the wire.
"Milan v Napoli? I don't think that one match can change the outcome of this competition, even if it ends in the draw."
The Champions League winners were ousted 1-0 at home by Bayern Munich on Wednesday and the Brazilian does not want that result to affect his team's Serie A form.
He said, "We lost a game against Bayern Munich but that doesn't mean we have to start over; just continue what we've been doing.
"It's important that we stay focused on our targets and don't lose sight of our league target; that mustn't change.
"The game [against Sampdoria] won't be easy also considering the atmosphere and the pitch there. Sampdoria have lost some important players and lots of things have changed for them - different individuals, a different playing system - but one thing they haven't lost is the spirit that helped them qualify for the Champions League."
