Conte: Juventus must win remaining two games now to clinch the title

The Bianconeri coach has stressed that his side cannot afford to spill any more points in the remainder of the season following Wednesday's draw
Antonio Conte has made it clear that Juventus must win their remaining two Serie A games if they are to clinch their 28th Serie A title in history.

The Old Lady were somewhat surprisingly held to a 1-1 draw by Lecce on Wednesday after a Gianluigi Buffon howler, and consequently saw their lead over second-placed AC Milan shrink to a single point.

Conte believes that Juventus can still win the Scudetto, despite the setback against Lecce, but insisted that they cannot afford to spill any more points.

"It's clear that this is a setback for us. We must win our remaining two games now. However, I'd have happily signed for this situation if you'd told me we'd be here earlier this year," Conte stated to Sky Sport Italia.

"It was an unfortunate incident with Gigi, but these things happen. He's still had a great season. This is football, and it's something in the past now."

Juventus resume Serie A action on Sunday when they travel to Cagliari.
