Mirko Vucinic has stressed that Juventus cannot afford to take Saturday's Serie A clash against arch-rivals Inter lightly if they are to get a positive result.
The Nerazzurri have been struggling to find their best form in recent months, but Vucinic believes they remain a force to be reckoned with.
"Just the name Inter says it all. They are a strong team and I'm not paying attention to those who say they're going through a difficult period," the Montenegro international told Sport Mediaset.
"I saw the second leg of their Europa League tie against Tottenham, and they put in a great performance. They were close to securing progress."
Juventus lock horns with Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Tuesday, but Vucinic has insisted they are focused on Saturday's match versus Inter.
He added: "We have to focus on the match against Inter for now and approach it as if it's the last game of our life. I don't think this will be a problem, though. We have the right mentality, thanks to the coach."
The Bianconeri were beaten 3-1 by Inter in Turin earlier this season which ended their 49-game unbeaten league run.
