Juventus still have a long way to go, says Conte

The 44-year-old has voiced his delight with Sunday's victory over Roma, but has insisted they cannot afford to get complacent
Juventus coach Antonio Conte feels it's too soon to claim that the Serie A title race is already over following the Bianconeri's 3-0 win over Roma on Sunday.

The reigning champions have moved eight points clear of the Giallorossi after this weekend's victory, yet Conte has warned that anything can still happen between now and the end of the season.

"The eight-point gap is important but we can’t afford to let it pull the wool over our eyes and lose concentration. Anything is still possible, just look at how we’ve made up 13 points on Roma," the successful coach told the Juventus website.

"Sunday’s victory is just an important step. We’ve still got one more game in Cagliari to round off the first half of the season, then on with the second.

"When you play against great teams like Roma you need to take advantage of their weak points. It would have been a problem had we not adequately prepared from a tactical point of view."

Juventus resume Serie A action away against Cagliari on Sunday.
