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 sit third in the table, two points behind leaders Udinese.

And although many have touted Antonio Conte's men as potential title winners, Marotta 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.

"Conte arrived this year, along with many new players. The coach is introducing new tactics and it takes time to mix a new group," Marotta said.

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